Summer Orientation

Congratulations on your acceptance to Buena Vista University! Our faculty, staff and students look forward to meeting you and having you be a part our community.


The Orientation program is designed to assist you as you prepare to start your university experience in August. Incoming students and family members will have an opportunity to meet our outstanding faculty and staff and learn more about our academic and co-curricular programs.

An important part of the orientation experience will be for you to meet your classmates and begin to form those supportive relationships that will help you to be successful here at BVU. The "O" team has planned a variety of interactive events that will help you feel welcome, informed and ready to start.
