Reconnect. Reminisce. Relive.

Bucky giving high fives at Reunion

Reunion is an exciting tradition for alumni. It's a time to reconnect and celebrate.

Reunion is filled with opportunities to gather with classmates, reminisce about student days, learn about exciting things occurring at Bucknell today 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.)
