During the spring semester, Bucknell University's Day in the Life program is only offered to our current high school senior applicants. This program provides them with an opportunity to experience a typical day at Bucknell by observing a class, meeting with a Bucknell faculty member, having lunch with a current student, participating in a more personalized campus tour, and chatting with Admissions personnel. Day in the Life is available Monday through Friday when classes are in session. Day in the Life typically runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (although, depending on class availability for certain areas of interest, could start as early as 7:30 a.m., and end as late as 5:00 p.m.)
Specific academic interests are featured on select days. If you cannot visit on the day your potential major is featured, please consider our other daily visit options.
Please note that a minimum of two weeks advance notice is required in order to take part in the Day in the Life program.
To Schedule: Appointments are required for Bucknell's Day in the Life program. Please call the Office of Admissions at 570-577-3000, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:45 a.m. and 4:15 p.m., to schedule a Day in the Life experience.
