Summer Orientation

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 our new Huskies in their transition, we host a summer orientation program for all students new to BU and their supporters ... yes, it's mandatory. Continue to watch your Husky email for more updates about summer orientation. Registration for summer orientation will be available in late April. Get excited, Husky!
