A quick reminder about your students' upcoming deadlines
Value of a DU Experience
What can you expect from your student's experience at the University of Denver? Small classes and personal attention from faculty? Certainly. An unbeatable location with access to world-class mountain activities? No question. But what are the qualities that truly set DU apart from the rest? What will set your student apart once they have graduated?
In today’s job market, it has become increasingly imperative for graduates to be able to say they’ve actually done something. At DU, we understand that “doing something” can take many different forms. Whether our students study abroad, pursue an internship, lead a community organization, relate research to a business plan, or conduct important fieldwork under the tutelage of one of our renowned professors, DU uniquely and meaningfully prepares them to apply their education right away.
Some recent statistics:
Our students are taking advantage of the many resources available to them both on and off campus. Make sure to support your student in their endeavors so they can make the most of their time at the University of Denver!

Registration for this first course also registers students for the Discoveries Orientation Program. Parents and families will still need to register for Discoveries Orientation separately. Students will register for all remaining fall quarter courses during Discoveries week. Please note: Students will not receive their housing assignment information until they have registered for a First-Year Seminar course.
