Orientation at Bloomsburg University

Office of New Student Orientation


Welcome new Huskies!

As a new BU student, you're probably going to have questions. We’re here to help! Our role in the Office of New Student Orientation is to help your transition to the Husky family, whether you're coming from high school, a professional experience or another college. Here, you'll find information specifically designed to ease your transition and get you started off on the right “paw." If you can't find what you need, we're here as a resource and support system.

To assist you in your transition, we host a summer orientation program for all students new to BU and their supporters ... yes, it's mandatory. Your specific orientation session is based on when advisors from your academic department are present to meet with you to discuss your schedule.
