June - July - August: Summer Send-OfF

Welcome to the DU Pioneer Family! Summer Send-Off is a great opportunity for incoming students and their families to connect with each other before orientation. Current families host these receptions over the summer. DU staff, current students and parents attend to answer questions and concerns and to share what they love most about DU.

Why you should attend:

  • Connect with other parents and students
  • One-on-one conversations with DU staff
  • Informal information sharing
  • Students meet fellow classmates before orientation
