Beginning June 29, we have introduced two options for families wanting to visit Bucknell: in-person information sessions (with an optional self-guided tour) and virtual visits.
In-person Information Sessions
An information session is a 45-minute introduction to our application process, campus life and innovative approach to learning.
Information sessions begin at these times:
July 13 to Aug. 1:
Mondays: 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Tuesdays: 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Wednesdays: 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Thursdays: 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Fridays: 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
To protect the health and safety of visitors and staff, we have made the following updates, based on guidance from health authorities:
Location: We have relocated information sessions to the spacious Weis Center for the Performing Arts. Free parking is available in the visitor lot just southwest of the Weis Center near the football stadium (lot 72 on this map).
Pre-registration: All visitors must register for the information session; we are not able to accommodate walk-in visitors at this time. See the schedule and register here. Please note that the state of Pennsylvania is recommending people traveling to Pennsylvania from certain states quarantine for 14 days before going out in public. Find up-to-date information here.
Health screening: To enter the information session, visitors are subject to a health screening that may include a temperature check. Please arrive at least 20 minutes early to ensure you make it inside with plenty of time to spare.
Physical distancing: Capacity at the information session is limited to 25 people, and every third row will be open for seating — measures designed to allow families to spread out as they learn more about Bucknell.
Cleaning: The Weis Center will be rigorously cleaned after each information session.
Self-guided tour: After the information session, we invite you to explore campus on your own. Maps for our self-guided tour will be available at the Weis Center.
Face coverings required: All visitors (ages 2 and up) must wear face coverings while inside. We will have a limited supply of face coverings available to those who need them.
Additional measures added: We've placed signs to promote one-way foot traffic and stickers on the floor to remind visitors to remain 6 feet apart.
