Bucknell University

March 2017

Dear Reader,

Congratulations to the men's basketball team for winning the Patriot League Championship and earning a trip to the NCAA tournament — see the video here. We're cheering for the women's team today as they host the league semifinals. You can show your support for all Bucknell varsity athletics by participating in the Bison March for Excellence, a 24-hour giving event that begins at noon on March 21 — watch for details soon. Go Bison!

The Parents Association will once again co-sponsor Bucknell CARES worldwide community service events in April. We hope you will join us at an event near you!

Finally, don’t forget that the deadline for current students to apply for 2017-18 need-based financial aid is April 15.

‘ray Bucknell!
