Act 101/EOP Student Orientation

Act 101/EOP Student Orientation


Welcome to Bloomsburg University and the Husky Family! To ease your transition to BU, the Orientation Office invites you to attend a special ACT 101/EOP summer orientation experience on June 28!

ACT 101/EOP orientation allows students to get a closer look at our scenic campus, learn about the activities and support services available to ACT 101/EOP students and receive guidance from the program staff.

All new ACT 101/EOP students are required to attend ACT 101/EOP orientation.

However, you are not required to attend a BU Preview day. There is no need to pre-register for Act 101/EOP orientation.

Orientation Schedule

Welcome to your ACT 101/EOP orientation experience! Orientation is designed to get your BU experience started off right! In order to have the best chance of success, it is important you attend every workshop and pay attention to the helpful information.

Ask questions! Make a new friend! Orientation is for YOU! Please note, events in bold are required.

  • 1 to 1:55 p.m. Summer Parent Preview (Carver Hall Auditorium) — Parents, orientation is for you, too! You have questions, and we have answers! Attend this informative workshop to learn important information such as financial aid, billing, health and wellness resources, as well as policies in place to keep your student safe this summer. Students: you can skip this workshop! Keep getting settled into your room and making new friends. You are invited to join in with orientation at 2 p.m.
  • 2 to 2:45 Welcome to ACT 101/EOP Summer of Success! (Carver Hall Auditorium) — The 6-week summer program will require dedication, tenacity, and a strong work ethic. We know you’ve got these qualities already, so let’s discuss how you will demonstrate them over the next six weeks! During this workshop, you will also meet the enthusiastic staff that will support you along the way! Parents: your portion of orientation is concluded at the end of this workshop. You are welcome to stay to have dinner with your student later, but the next workshop is for students only. Some parents take this opportunity to purchase their student’s textbooks, or other last minute supplies.
  • 3 to 3:45 p.m. PA Meetings (PA Workshop locations) ⏼ Most everything you do this summer will be as part of a P.A. Group. P.A. stands for Program Assistant. Program Assistants will be valuable resources for you as you transition through the summer program. As upper-class scholars and former ACT 101/EOP students, Program Assistants know what is required to be successful, and are ready to share that information with you! This workshop is for students only.
  • 4 to 5:30 p.m. Dinner (Scranton Commons) — In order to provide an excellent dining experience for all students, you will be assigned a dinner shift. Dinner shifts are 4, 4:30, and 5 p.m. You will only be permitted to entire the dining hall during your assigned shift time. You must also have your student ID, which houses your meal plan. Without your student ID, you will have to pay to enter the dining hall. Commuters: staying for dinner is optional. If you chose to eat in the Scranton Commons, you are responsible for the cost of your meal.
  • 5:45 to 7:15 p.m. Dean of Students & One is Too Many (Haas Center) — As a community, Huskies value respect, dignity, diversity, and the right to a safe and healthy atmosphere. This experience introduces your role and responsibilities as a new Husky. To ensure consistency, attendance will be taken. Commuters are not required to attend.
  • 8 to 9 p.m. Residence Life Wing Meetings (Residence Hall) — See your Community Assistant (CA) for details. Commuters are not required to attend.
