Bucknell University

October 2016

Dear Reader,

More than 3,000 parents and family members visited campus and enjoyed beautiful weather while experiencing Bucknell's academics, athletics and arts during Family Weekend. Enjoy the photos and video that captured highlights of the weekend's memorable moments, and be sure to save the dates for next year — Sept. 22-24, 2017!

No matter where you are in the world on Oct. 21, you can show your Bucknell spirit during Homecoming Weekend by snapping a photo and posting to social media using #BucknellNation. The most creative and festive photo will win a prize. This is a great way to build connections with the entire Bucknell community.

On July 1, 2017, Bucknell's School of Management will officially transition to a College. Learn more about the change and how Provost Barbara Altmann believes it will benefit all Bucknell students.
