Admitted Student Visits

You're in, now come explore

Congratulations! You've completed the first step in becoming a Pioneer, and we hope you'll continue to consider DU as your college home. Before you do, though, we encourage you to come to campus and find out what makes DU a great place to find what inspires you. It starts with the beauty of our campus, but there's so much more to discover. At our admitted student events, you'll be able to talk to current DU students, faculty, and other campus employees.
