Bucknell University

February 2017

Dear %%$first%%,

There may still be a few weeks left of winter, but the Office of Alumni Relations is getting ready for summer as we prepare to welcome class years ending in 2 and 7 to return to campus to celebrate Reunion Weekend June 1-4. Registration will begin soon, so look for more information in your email and mailbox!


Bucknell also opens its doors with the Alumni & Summer Guest Program, plus summer camps and workshops where high school students can explore creative problem-solving, engineering, chemistry, and the college search and application process. Please visit the links to view more details and register.


'ray Bucknell!
