Dear %%$first%%,

Both Bison basketball teams are in the middle of successful campaigns heading into the final month of the regular season. We hope you’ll don orange and blue for an upcoming game celebration in your city — or join one of the 200 other events planned for alumni throughout the year!

As another benefit, the Bucknell Alumni Association offers several exclusive discounts for Bucknell alumni. Through our latest partnership with the Princeton Club of New York, Bucknellians can apply for access to club membership and all of its social, recreational and networking perks, which extend to 200 reciprocal clubs worldwide.

'ray Bucknell!
