JUNE - July - August: Summer Send-off events

Summer Send-Offs are a chance for new families to meet DU staff, for students to make friends before moving to DU, for parents in the same area to connect with each other, and for current students and parents to share what they love most about DU. We are always looking for families interested in hosting this event in their local area. Contact if you would like more information about the event or being a host.
