Bison Gatherings

Bison Gatherings, a cherished Bucknell tradition, are back!

Often held during the summer at the homes of Bucknell families across the country, these events offer incoming first-year students and their families the opportunity to meet one another and interact with current students, families and alumni. During each gathering, a University representative provides comprehensive information about New Student Orientation and answers questions about what to expect the first few days on campus.

Registration for the incoming first-year class is available in June.
