Bison Gatherings

Bison Gatherings are held at the homes of Bucknell parents and families across the country during the summer. These gatherings offer a great opportunity for incoming first-year students and their families to meet one another and interact with current Bucknell students, parents and alumni. A University representative will attend and provide comprehensive information about New Student Orientation and answer questions about what to expect the first few days on campus.

Registration for the Class of 2024 will be available in June 2020.
