Make the Most of Commencement Weekend with the Bucknell App
Using the Bucknell App, you can browse all weekend events so that you don't miss any highlights. The app also features an integrated campus map to help you find your way around. Download for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
Island Photography will take graduate photos during Commencement 2020. Every graduate will be photographed during the ceremony. Enter your email and the email addresses of up to six friends and family members to view your graduate's photos. There is no obligation to purchase.
It's important we learn of your postgraduate plans! The Center for Career Advancement has a brief survey that feeds data for you and your classmates into Bucknell's annual Postgraduate Report of Activity. After completing the Postgraduate Survey, graduates will receive honors medallions, senior gift drive items, rain location tickets and their caps and gowns.
Surveys can be completed and caps and gowns may be picked up on the second floor of Elaine Langone Center at these dates and times:
May 15, noon to 4:30 p.m.
May 16, noon to 4 p.m.
Procession directions for the Commencement Ceremony will be provided to graduates when caps and gowns are distributed. Caps and gowns are provided to graduates at no charge and do not need to be returned. Caps and gowns must be picked up by the graduating student only. They cannot be picked up by a designee.
Baccalaureate is a celebration of gratitude for the Class of 2020 featuring student speakers, performance and written word. This multi-faith, multi-cultural service is a time for reflection, celebration and giving thanks. The event is open to all graduates, guests and members of the Bucknell community. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors will open at 5 p.m.
Create a blessing for your graduate, or the Class of 2020. These blessings from families and friends will welcome us to the Baccalaureate Celebration. Tags may be collected following the service.
Honor your graduate and their accomplishments by making a gift to Bucknell. You can choose to make a gift in honor of someone who has made an impact on your student at Bucknell. This may be a professor, a coach, a campus employee or a fellow student.
