Discoveries: Your Gateway to DU

Our goal at Discoveries is to make sure that you have a successful transition to the University of Denver.

We match you with a current DU student (your Orientation Leader), who acts as your guide through the jam-packed week of Discoveries Orientation.

From building social connections to finding out the best places to eat on-campus, your Orientation Leader and the rest of the Discoveries Team will make sure you are well-informed and prepared for your first year at the University of Denver.

As a transfer student, you've already had experience on a college campus. Your orientation week is designed with this in mind, and gives you an opportunity to learn about the specific ins and outs of DU.

Throughout the week you'll participate in activities such as:
• small group discussions,
• large group presentations,
• interaction with faculty,
• academic advising,
• fun social activities,
• registration for the rest of your fall quarter courses,
• and much more!

Transfer Student Discoveries Orientation Options
Transfer students have 2 options for orientation:
1. Attend the Discoveries Orientation Week (Sunday, September 6th-Saturday, September 12th)
2. Attend a 1-Day Orientation (Friday, August 21st)

All Transfer Students must attend an orientation. We strongly encourage you to attend the Discoveries Orientation Week if possible. Participating in the week will give you the full benefit of our time and resources. Both orientations offer you the opportunity to register for your Fall Quarter classes.
