Reunion is a special program designed to reconnect Bucknell alumni with their classmates and alma mater. Every five years we invite classes back to campus to celebrate the anniversaries of their graduation during Reunion Weekend. Thousands of Bucknellians travel from near and far to celebrate with educational opportunities, live music, campus tours, family friendly activities, and plenty of time to catch up with old friends and make new ones at class dinners and happy hours.

After the 50th anniversary reunion, classes become part of the Emeritus Classes program, a longstanding tradition at Bucknell, and are invited annually to celebrate during Reunion Weekend.

Experience the magic through video and pictures and learn how you can get involved in planning for your next Reunion Weekend. We can't wait for you to come home!

Plan the Party!

Reunion wouldn't be possible without help from alumni volunteers.

If you're interested in volunteering on the outreach committee or in a leadership role for your class, email us at!
