Why engage In orientation at BCU

Please take time and explore the New Student Guidebook, it will provide you with a great deal of information that will help ease your transition to Life University.  Our orientation program is designed to provide you with relevant information and to help you make connections.  Your orientation to LIFE will revolve around four areas of focus:

You will meet with individuals from many different offices on campus that will become important to you during your time at Life University. These include individuals from Financial Aid, the Library, the Student Success Center, Student Affairs, Athletics, Clubs, Campus Organizations and more.

If you don’t already know, Life University is one of the premier, contemporary, vitalistic health care institutions in the country. During your orientation program, you will have the opportunity to learn more about our outstanding educational programs, as well as have an opportunity to arrange for chiropractic wellness care in one of our clinics.

A vital component of your university experience is creating new connections. Not only will you have the chance to meet other incoming students, but also some current students, as well as faculty, administration and staff members. Life University is a warm, welcoming community of individuals who care about each other and want to see each other succeed in their chosen paths. You will find that the individuals you meet at orientation will be part of your educational experience for the next several years.

The final component of orientation is the opportunity to receive one-on-one advising and course registration. During the orientation program, you will meet with an University Advisor assigned specifically to you. The University Advisors are dedicated to working with you to plan a challenging and rewarding academic experience aimed at maximizing your potential here at Life University. University Advisors are also a great resource for all things related to your experiences on campus.
