The Celebration of 125 Years of Co-Education at Bucknell University will be held during Homecoming, October 23-October 25, 2009.
It is difficult to imagine a Bucknell in which men and women are not only learning side-by-side, but also working closely together both inside and outside the classroom. Bucknell has a rich tradition of valuing its female students and was the fourteenth university in the United States to become co-educational. What makes this milestone especially remarkable is that Bucknell was first school in the Patriot League to admit women and was nearly 90 years ahead of many colleges and universities in the United States. We have much of which to be proud as we prepare for the celebration and symposium that will take place on Friday, October 23 and conclude on the morning of Saturday, October 24 with the dedication of a commemorative courtyard on the Academic Quad.
We hope you will consider joining us as we commemorate and reflect upon the significance of Bucknell's longstanding commitment to educating women and men. The celebration and symposium will be infused with personal stories of life inside and outside the classroom. We invite you to think about your own Bucknell experience and how your professional and personal lives have been enhanced by having the opportunity to live and learn in an environment committed to the equality, excellence, and interdependence of all of its members.
