"Greetings from your Reunion Planning Committee. Our 20th reunion is fast approaching and we encourage you to come explore Bucknell's campus with us again. While many things are the same and just as we remember (including the special closeness of the Bucknell community), there are many new things as well. Examples include the new Graham Building, South Campus Apartments, some new Affinity and Fraternity houses, a third College (College of Management), and much more. Experience the camaraderie of Class of 1998 friendships and the Bucknell campus again. Come celebrate our 20th-year reunion with us!"
