Reunion

Reconnect. Reminisce. Relive.

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.)

For the first time since 2019, campus was alive with alumni, family and friends for Reunion 2022. Alumni from classes as far back as 1952 were present, including those from years ending with 2 and 7, Emeritus classes and 50 year celebrants from the Classes of 1970, 1971 and 1972.

Events throughout campus, including tours and Bucknell 360º sessions, showcased and informed alumni about changes and improvements the University has invested in since their last visits to Lewisburg. Alumni were recognized for their service, commitment or special anniversary during the Bucknell University Alumni Association (BUAA) Awards Reception and Ceremony as well as during the 50th Reunion Procession, and all in attendance made the most of the gorgeous weather during the many outdoor events of the weekend, including the Alumni Golf Tournament, kayak and hiking trips, the All Class Lunch and Festival and the Weekend Grand Finale.

The Bucknell Reunion Team is thankful for the work the Reunion class volunteers did throughout the year to help make Reunion 2022 a success for their classmates and the Bucknell community.
