Bucknell University

September 2016

We hope to see you for Family Weekend Sept. 23-25. Online registration closes Sept. 14. You may also register on campus that weekend inside Gerhard Fieldhouse.

As we look ahead to Family Weekend, we thought you'd enjoy seeing some of the memorable moments from this year's New Student Orientation, during which we welcomed the Class of 2020. You can say hello to some of our newest Bucknellians and recent grads by joining one of the Bucknell Regional Club receptions in your area.

As you know, Bucknell is committed to providing the very best undergraduate experience, which includes offering students access to state-of-the-art facilities. That's why Academic East is a key priority in the WE DO Campaign. The planned facility will expand research, teaching and learning for engineering and education students and faculty.

'ray Bucknell!
