Reunion Weekend

Reconnect. Reminisce. Relive.

Reunion tent on Malesardi Quad

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. Each class celebrates a Reunion once every five years, except emeritus classes who celebrate annually. (Emeritus classes are those who graduated more than 50 years ago.) Registration will open in March 2020. Don't miss your Reunion!

Class Awards

Make a gift in honor of your class reunion and help your class win an award! Awards will be presented during class dinners on Saturday evening of Reunion Weekend. Awards are based on gifts and registrations made prior to Reunion Weekend.

  • President's Award: Best overall performance, being the first to reach all three class goals (giving participation, amount given to Bucknell's Annual Fund and weekend registrations)

  • Class Unity Award: First class to reach both giving goals (donor participation and dollar amount)

  • Orange and Blue Spirit Award: Most notable overall Reunion spirit
