Orientation at SBU

Mt. Irenaeus Orientation Overnight 2023
Orientation is an opportunity to learn about all things Bonaventure, from the interesting classes you'll be taking to the fun and rewarding clubs and organization you can join. It also marks the start of new friendships that you will cherish the rest of your life.

Separate orientation programs are conducted for each of the three groups of new Bonnies arriving on campus each year:
  • Freshmen
  • Fall transfer students
  • Students arriving at the start of the spring semester in January

Freshman orientation

Four two-day sessions for incoming freshmen and their parents are held each July.

All incoming freshmen and their parents are strongly encouraged to attend one of our two-day orientation sessions. Dates for summer of 2023 orientation sessions will be announced here as soon as they become available. A registration form will be available at that time as well. Please return to this site often.
