Transfer Student Orientation

Transfer Student Orientation


Welcome to Bloomsburg University and the Husky Family! To ease your transition to BU, the Orientation Office invites you to attend a BU Preview day!

BU Preview days offer are a perfect opportunity for new students and their families to meet faculty and current students, get a closer look at our scenic campus and learn about the activities and support services available to BU students. All new students are required to attend a BU Preview day.

For your convenience, Bloomsburg offers two different BU Preview dates for transfer students:

  • July 16
  • July 17
