Bucknell University

November 2016

Dear %%Sfirst%%,

Being part of the Parents Board is an engaging experience and a great way to become more involved with your student's Bucknell experience. We are looking for parents in the Class of 2020 with varying backgrounds and geographic locations. Please review the member expectations, committee descriptions and, if interested, complete the online application on or before Jan. 7, 2017. Contact any member of the Parents Board or me with questions.

 

With the fall break and winter recess fast approaching, here's a friendly reminder for those who need to make transportation arrangements from campus to an airport or train station. Find out more about our shuttle schedule and reservations.

Finally, this is a friendly reminder to make transportation arrangements if needed for the end of the fall semester and winter break.

'ray Bucknell!
