Ask Bucknell University admissions officers questions about what it takes to get admitted to Bucknell, their application process, academics, and more.
Bucknell has shut down campus visits and tours due to the coronavirus outbreak, and many families are missing out on the opportunity to learn about the college first hand from admissions staff on campus. Candace, Kristin, Brandon, and Carolyn will start the session with an in-depth overview of Bucknell, covering topics ranging from admissions to academics to campus life. In the second half of the session, they'll open the floor to an audience Q&A session and answer your questions about Bucknell admissions, life on campus, and more.
