For Parents & Families

At Bucknell, we're like a family, bound by the experiences we share and the new discoveries we make together. 

You are an important member of the Bucknell family, too, and we're eager for you to connect with Bucknell parents, explore our campus, learn alongside your student and join the lifelong community of Bucknellians.

As a Bucknell parent, you are one of our most valuable ambassadors. Represent Bucknell at Admissions events, hire or offer internships to Bucknell students, serve on a career panel and more. By volunteering for the University, you can share your Bucknell story with an even wider audience, enhance the University's reputation and help increase the value of your student's degree.
