Bucknell University

August 2016

Hello,

Earlier this year, we shared the news of Bob '45 and Doris Malesardi's historic commitment to Bucknell. Now we're excited to announce the Malesardi Match, a new program to expand endowed scholarships, a top priority of the WE DO Campaign. The program encourages donors to follow Bob and Doris' commitment to helping make Bucknell accessible to all well-qualified students with financial need. See the story below for more on this extraordinary opportunity.

Members of the Parents Board created a video to wish a warm welcome to parents and families of the Class of 2020. Want a glimpse of Bucknell? Check it out!

'ray Bucknell!
