Bucknell University

April 2017

Dear Reader,

Thank you to all of the parents who helped make last month’s Bison March for Excellence athletics giving challenge a great success. If you didn’t have a chance to participate, there’s still time to support the Bucknell program of your choice. Parent giving of any amount, to any designation, is put to use right away for programs that benefit all students. Senior parents are invited to make a gift in honor of their student’s graduation.

Speaking of Commencement, don’t forget to make your final arrangements if you’re planning to attend. On-campus housing during Commencement Weekend is a great option for families — reserve online by Friday, May 12. Add to the celebration with a bouquet of flowers for your graduate on their special day. Order online by Monday, May 15.


‘ray Bucknell!
