Bucknell University

September 2016

Classes resumed last week, and we officially welcomed the Class of 2020 to the Bucknell community. As fall approaches, we hope you'll join us on campus to celebrate Homecoming Weekend Oct. 21-23. Registration opens soon!

This month we're pleased to share information about Academic East, a key priority in the WE DO Campaign. The planned facility will expand research, teaching and learning for engineering and education students and faculty.

Don't miss the chance to give a warm welcome to Bucknellians new to your city. Attend a welcome reception for new grads and residents scheduled throughout the month.

'ray Bucknell!
