Bucknell offers a diversity program, but they are going to make you work to get in. Journey to Bucknell is an overnight program designed to expose high-achieving, culturally diverse high school seniors to Bucknell University. The program will take place from Nov. 8-10, 2015.
Prospective students will experience life as a Bucknell student by
- staying overnight in one of our residence halls
- attending fall Open House to learn more about academic and social opportunities
- meeting faculty, staff, and current Bucknell students
- exploring our beautiful campus
In order to be eligible to apply, students must be nominated by a counselor or a representative of a community-based organization and they must be enrolled in an academically rigorous program of study with a minimum unweighted grade point average of 3.3 and must have taken the ACT, PSAT or SAT. For more information see their Class of 2018 Profile.
Nominations forms need to be submitted by Sept. 25, 2015.
Nominated students will be notified and given the opportunity to apply to attend Journey to Bucknell. Students who are chosen to attend will receive travel expenses, including flights and shuttles to and from campus, and all meals while on campus.
Tell your students to start campaigning now, it never hurts to ask a counselor to write a nomination. Make it easy on them, they’re always overloaded. Have your student prepare their resume, transcripts or copies of past report cards and a sample essay about why they would like to attend. Make sure to include highlights that would be appropriate for the counselor to use in their nomination form.
