New Student Orientation

H.O.W.L. Day Update

Dear Future Huskies: We were looking forward to seeing you at the upcoming March 28 and April 10 HOWL Days. However, out of concern for the safety of our extended Husky family (including you) we have suspended all on and off-campus activities through May 4th - including both the March 28 and April 10 HOWL Days.

While these are challenging times, Huskies are never afraid of the path ahead. We understand that getting to know us, and our beautiful campus, is an important part of the college decision-making process. Our admissions team is developing new ways to engage with you and your family in the coming weeks. We will be in touch with you soon regarding future on-campus visit opportunities.

We encourage you to contact our office with any questions and we will provide updates as they become available.

The Office of New Student Orientation


Welcome to the Husky Family!

Welcome to Bloomsburg University and the New Student & Family Orientation Office! We are so excited to climb with you on your journey onward and upward as a Husky! To get you started on the right “paw,” we are excited to offer several one-day new student and family orientation experiences called, “H.O.W.L. Days.” H.O.W.L. stands for Husky Orientation, Welcome, & Launch! These experiences are required for new first-year students (freshmen), transfer students, and their families who have been accepted to start their BU careers in the fall of 2020.

We also offer a special orientation for adult learners and ACE students that will take place in August. For additional questions, please contact our office at 570.389.4595. See you soon!

Parents and Supporters, please join the conversation about parenting a new Husky by connecting with our private Class of 2024 Parent and Family Facebook group.
