What is an OWL?


Orientation Workshop Leaders, or OWLs as we affectionately refer to them, are highly trained student leaders whose job is to help you adjust to life at Bloomsburg University.

There are more than 75 spirited and talented OWLs who will serve as your personal hosts and share their experiences, tips and strategies for success. OWLs range from sophomores to seniors and cover nearly every major offered at BU. They live on and off-campus and are each involved in an average of at least three other student organizations on campus.

In addition to hosting you during your orientation experience, OWLs are also a highly active student organization on campus. At any given time, OWLs are:

  • participating in fun community service activities
  • recruiting new OWLs
  • fundraising
  • going on group outings, such as amusement parks
  • participating in leadership training
  • and traveling to conferences
