June 2016

Let’s talk about last weekend. More than 2,200 Bucknellians came back to campus to celebrate, reconnect and reminisce during Reunion Weekend. Enjoy our favorite photos from the weekend and see the special Reunion Edition of The Bucknellian with alumni-written articles.

This spring, Bucknell CARES swept the nation, bringing together nearly 500 alumni, parents and students to give back through community service projects in 25 cities. Check out the slideshow.

A quick reminder that Bucknell's fiscal year closes June 30. Please consider making a gift today to help our students.

’ray Bucknell!
