What is a Bucknell Legacy?

A Bucknell legacy is a descendant of a Bucknell alumnus/a. This relationship would include parents and stepparents, grandparents and stepgrandparents, great-grandparents, etc.

If you are an alumnus/a with children, let us know. Descendants of Bucknell alumni have access to special programs and events like those listed below.
