Bucknell University

August 2017

Dear Reader,

We’re excited to welcome students back to campus and wish to extend a special welcome to new Bucknell parents! Please enjoy this video from members of our Parents Board.


Parents were an important part of the successful completion of the WE DO Campaign, contributing nearly $50 million. On behalf of all students, faculty and staff, thank you! We look forward to celebrating this accomplishment with our current parents during Family Weekend.

’ray Bucknell!
