Update on Gateway to Bucknell

Bucknell, like other universities around the world, has been actively monitoring the coronavirus and its effects on our state, region and country. While there are no known or suspected cases of the virus at Bucknell, we're continuously tracking its status and working to mitigate potential risk.

With that in mind, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel Gateway to Bucknell.

Please know that we did not make this decision lightly. The safety of our students — both current and future — as well as our faculty and staff is our highest priority. We also are mindful of the families that planned to travel to campus and do not want to put them at risk.

The Office of Admissions remains open, and we encourage you to reach out with any questions. Contact our team at 570-577-3000 or

While our in-person events have been cancelled, we encourage you to explore our websitevisit our YouTube channel or attend a fall open house event.
