Orientation aims to facilitate new students’ transition into Boston University School of Public Health and to enrich each individual’s unique educational experience. You’ll learn about life inside and outside the classroom, from academics to research, employment, and volunteer opportunities. Orientation is also an excellent opportunity to meet your peers, the faculty and staff, and deans of the School.

Orientation is designed to introduce new students to the school, acquaint them with resources and involvement opportunities, and officially welcome them to the “Terrier Family”. Through educational and social opportunities, both online and in-person, the newest members of our community can begin their next big adventure on the right path. 

We will post updates for the BUSPH 2024 Summer and Fall orientations on this page. Please check back later for details.
