Bucknell University

May 2017

Dear Reader,

We are preparing to celebrate Commencement for the Class of 2017. Congratulations to our graduates and their families! If you or your family members can’t make the trip, watch it live online.

As we wish our newest alumni well, we’re excited to welcome the Class of 2021 to the Bucknell family. All parents and students are encouraged to attend a Bison Gathering in your area this summer. Watch for mailed invitations in June.

Finally, don’t miss your opportunity to order the official 2017 yearbook, L’Agenda.

'ray Bucknell!
