Orientation at SBU

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 2022 orientation sessions include:

  • Session I: July 11-12
  • Session II: July 14-15
  • Session III: July 18-19
  • Session IV: July 21-22
An additional session, July 27, will be held online for the convenience of international students as well as students in the U.S. who live far from campus and are unable to travel to one of the four in-person sessions.

Students will register online for one of the orientation sessions. A link to the online registration portal will be available here in the spring 2022 semester. Please return to this site often for updates.
