These signature admissions pieces are colorful and comprehensive, but there’s one thing they aren’t: customizable.

“The Bucknell experience is unique to each student based on their interests, passions and goals,” says Dean of Admissions Kevin Mathes ’07. “That’s why we’ve created the Bucknell Custom Viewbook. It allows students to tell us a bit about themselves so we can show them how the things they care about most can be realized at Bucknell.”
