Bucknell University

January 2017

Dear Reader,

Happy New Year! We look forward to a busy and exciting spring semester, culminating with Commencement for the Class of 2017.

It all starts next week when we welcome students back to campus with a series of events celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Week, Jan. 16–22. Next month, the Career Development Center will host a series of annual career fairs. We hope you’ll encourage your student to take advantage of these great opportunities.

All Bucknell families are invited to attend a CafĂ© Connections event in a city near you during the week of Feb. 26–March 5. Watch for an invitation soon.

Finally, it's not too early to start making arrangements for Commencement, which takes place May 21. On-campus lodging is available, and registration opens at the end of January.

'ray Bucknell!
