The Bucknell journey has begun for the nearly 1,000 new undergraduate students who now call the University's first-year residence halls home. Move-in Day at Bucknell is an emotion-packed experience, from the moment students arrive to the excited cheers of orientation assistants, to those teary goodbye hugs with loved ones. It's also one that flies by with remarkable speed and precision — nearly all of these newly welcomed students had unloaded their belongings and settled into their rooms in time for an early lunch. But unpacking is just the first step of joining the Bucknell community, with a week's worth of orientation activities to come, all guiding the way toward becoming a Bucknellian. Join the Class of 2021 on the first steps in that journey by watching the video above.
