Interviews & Information Sessions
Call (570) 577-1101 Bucknell admissions staff conducts interviews on and off campus throughout the fall at different times from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. On Saturdays, interviews will be held between 9 a.m.-11:15 a.m. The interviews are not evaluative, though, so students should not feel that they must interview.
Campus Tours
Campus tours run Monday-Friday at 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m., and on Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m. No appointment is necessary, and the tour starts at the Admissions Office in Freas Hall.
Overnight Visits
Bucknell offers overnight visits, where a prospective student can stay with a current Bucknell student. Overnight visits are available Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights when students are on campus.
