St. Bonaventure University


Freshman Orientation 2022:
Weeks of July 11 & July 18


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. Typically, four two-day sessions are scheduled, all in July. A registration link is made available from this site several months prior to start of the sessions.

A Save The Date announcement of freshman orientation dates for July of 2022 will be available on this website in spring of 2022. Soon after, a registration link will allow incoming freshmen for fall of 2022 register for one of the two-day sessions.


    Fall & January transfer student orientation

    All incoming transfer students must attend orientation prior to the start of the semester. Participants will have the opportunity explore the academic, social and residential aspects of campus life. Family members are welcome to attend.
