Kit guides 2017

Kit Guides

A "kit" is a baby beaver. We thought letting our growing Bluffton Beavers (current students) guide you through orientation would be a great way to give you the best perspective of Bluffton: what it's like to be a student. Kit Guides will introduce you and your family to the Bluffton community during orientation.

Orientation & registration

Bluffton University's orientation program is made up of two separate events. Orientation and registration is a day-long event held during the spring and summer. Welcome week begins the Friday before classes begin in August.


orientation & registration

Friday, June 21, 2019
Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Orientation & registration is designed so you can complete both in only one day. You'll visit residence halls, interact with current students and meet with an adviser who will help you register for your first classes at Bluffton. We have sessions for your parents and other family members, so bring them along, too.
