Update on Spring Visit Events

Bucknell is tracking the status of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and working to mitigate the potential risks it poses. The safety of students — both current and future — as well as our faculty and staff is our top priority. With that in mind, we have cancelled on-campus visit events until further notice. 

We look forward to reopening campus so that you can experience our beautiful campus and exceptional facilities in person.

But until then, we are offering virtual visit options, including information sessions and student ambassador chats, that let you learn more about Bucknell from wherever you are.

Fall Open Houses

Satisfy your curiosity at one of our fall open houses, where high school students experience what it's like to live and learn at Bucknell.

An open house lets you take a closer look at our first-rate facilities, meet our impressive professors, enjoy lunch with Bucknell students and get answers to your most pressing questions.
