Reconnect. Reminisce. Relive.

Reunion Weekend is an exciting tradition for alumni. It is a time to come home to Bucknell to celebrate. The weekend is filled with opportunities to reconnect with classmates, reminisce about student days and enjoy class events, interactions with students and faculty, educational sessions, recreational opportunities and much more. Don’t miss your reunion!

Each class celebrates a reunion once every five years, except *Emeritus classes celebrate annually. (*Emeritus classes are those who graduated more than 50 years ago.)
