Orient me! I am a … Summer Freshmen


Summer Freshman student: You are a freshman student invited to begin their academic career in summer 2014.

Welcome to Bloomsburg University and the Husky Family! To ease your transition to BU, the Orientation Office invites you to attend a special Summer Freshmen orientation experience on June 29, 2014!

Summer Freshman orientation allows students to get a closer look at our scenic campus, learn about the activities and support services available to Summer Freshmen students and receive guidance from the program coordinator, Brad Swenson.

All new Summer Freshmen are required to attend Summer Freshman orientation. However, you are not required to attend a BU Preview day.

There is no need to pre-register for Summer Freshmen orientation.

Thank you for helping us make the most of your summer Orientation experience!
