Bucknell University

June 2017

Dear Reader,

Last weekend we had a record turnout for Reunion Weekend! More than 2,400 Bucknellians returned to campus to celebrate lifelong friendships and our alumni community, including this year's Alumni Association Award recipients. Enjoy a video and photos from the weekend, as well as a special edition of The Bucknellian featuring alumni-written articles. Thank you to the Reunion class volunteers who helped make the weekend a success!

 

We'd also like to thank those who volunteered this spring with Bucknell CARES. Eighteen regional clubs hosted events across the nation, with more than 320 Bucknellians teaming up to improve their local communities.


’ray Bucknell!

Josh Grill
Executive Director, Alumni Relations

P.S. Bucknell's fiscal year closes June 30. Please consider making a gift today to help our students.
