Career Services


The Association Board of Directors provided seed money for the Alumni Career Services program. This program provides alumni lifetime career assistance, networking events and career counseling. Alumni also have access to more than 48,000 alumni through the B-Link Alumni Directory.


Bucknell Business Directory

The Alumni Association Board of Directors has developed the online Bucknell Business Directory as a starting point for doing business with members of the Bucknell Community. The Directory is another access point into Bucknell’s powerful network of 75,000 alumni, parents and friends of the University. You can search the Directory by Geography or by Product/Service Type and find Bucknell affiliated businesses that have special offers just for Bucknellians.


Club/Network Activities

All alumni have free membership to regional clubs and industry/professional networks (quite a perk when industry standard is to charge annual fees for membership). The Association partners with Club and Network Leadership and financially supports two annual events across the country (Community Service Day – April; Welcome Happy Hour events for new graduates - September). 


Admissions

Children of alumni can attend college preparatory events through the Legacy Program during Homecoming and Reunion weekends. Alumni can also engage with newly admitted members of the Bucknell community through the volunteer Alumni Mentor Program. 


Alumni Association Awards

Each year during Reunion Weekend, the Association Board of Directors celebrates four alumni through the Alumni Association Awards. This tradition began in 1951 with the introduction of the Loyalty to Bucknell Award and grew during the 1950s to include Service to Humanity and Outstanding Achievement in a Chosen Profession.  In 2001, a fourth award honoring an outstanding Young Alumni was introduced. Read stories of past recipients or submit a confidential nomination of a deserving alumna/us (due annually by November 15th).
