Huge Bucknell banners nearly 40 feet long flanked the entrance of the landmark Cipriani Wall Street building April 10, greeting more than 400 guests who gathered to celebrate the School of Management's accomplishments, meet with faculty and students and learn more about the campaign's Management Education Initiative.

Remarks by trustee Chris O'Brien '80, P'18, School of Management Director Michael Johnson-Cramer and Professor William Gruver set the stage for an evening that highlighted exciting current projects, as well as future plans that will be realized through WE DO, The Campaign for Bucknell University.

"The School of Management is the beating heart of the WE DO spirit at Bucknell," said Johnson-Cramer. "This is our time to 'rise and build,' to strengthen management education so that those who would follow in our footsteps have a path to follow."

Special guest Jim Cramer P'18, the CNBC financial analyst and author, provided powerful opening and closing remarks. He also moderated a spirited discussion with Bucknell management alumni, and hosted a conversation with President John Bravman and Steve Holmes '79, P'06, P'08, trustee and campaign chairman. Guests then enjoyed interactive learning spaces presented by management faculty and students.

"The energy of the event and the enthusiasm shared by our alumni, parents and friends is inspiring," said Bravman. "Their support will enable us to realize the vision for the Management Education Initiative and ensure that our blend of management and the liberal arts will continue to distinguish Bucknell for years to come."
