Bucknell University

October 2016

Dear %%$first%%,

We invite you to join us for some fall weather, football and family fun during Homecoming Weekend Oct. 21-23. This year includes special celebrations for the 30th anniversary of the Residential Colleges and the 120th anniversary of The Bucknellian.

Help us kick off Homecoming Weekend by sharing your Bucknell spirit on social media using #BucknellNation on Oct. 21. The most creative and festive photo will win a tailgate prize. No matter where you are in the world, "come home to your colors" and show the strength of the global Bucknell community!

Another way to share your Bucknell spirit is by nominating an exceptional Bucknellian for an Alumni Association Award. The deadline is Nov. 15, and recipients will be honored during Reunion Weekend June 1-4, 2017.

About a month after Reunion Weekend, the School of Management will officially become the College of Management. Learn more about this transition and how it will benefit students.

'ray Bucknell!
