Bucknell University

February 2017

Dear Reader,

As the spring semester gets into full swing, here are a few friendly reminders to help you and your student get the most out of your Bucknell experience.

Senior parents, be sure to order a copy of L’Agenda, the official 2017 Bucknell yearbook. There is still time to add a personal message for your graduate.

Have you registered for a Café Connection in your area? We invite you to visit our Parents Facebook page for photos and updates!

Finally, did you know the Career Development Center offers programming for all students? Check out our Parents Guide to Career Development for tips, and remind your student to sign up for events and other opportunities via the Bridge.

'ray Bucknell!
