Summer Preparatory Academy

Summer Preparatory Academy


Welcome to Bloomsburg University and the Husky Family! To ease your transition to BU, the Orientation Office invites you to attend a Summer Preparatory Academy orientation experience on July 2, 2017!

Summer Preparatory Academy orientation allows students to get a closer look at our scenic campus, learn about the activities and support services available to Summer Preparatory Academy students and receive guidance from the program staff. All new Summer Preparatory Academy students are required to attend orientation. However, you are not required to attend a BU Preview day. There is no need to pre-register for Summer Preparatory Academy orientation. For additional information about new student orientation, please visit the links to the left hand side of this page!

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