Celebrate and Reconnect

Every five years classes are invited back to campus to celebrate Reunion Weekend. Thousands of Bucknellians travel from near and far to celebrate. The schedule is filled with opportunities to reconnect, learn and have fun — with the whole family.

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

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!
