Letter to Accepted DU Students

Welcome Future DU Student!

Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of Denver! We hope you decide to join our incoming 2021-2022 cohort. As you begin this exciting journey, I want to encourage you to participate in one of the University’s Living and Learning Communities (LLCs). Our LLCs will empower you to make the most of your first year here at DU through a program that combines academics, residential life, guest speakers, team-building activities, and community engagement.

By participating in the ILLC, you will join up to 30 other students living together on the same floor. On this floor you will feel an immediate sense of community, as you will be living with peers who share your same curiosity and passion for innovation, startups, and tackling social problems. Together, you and your cohort will take a two-credit course each quarter of your first year, diving deeper into these important themes and topics. Last academic year, our ILLC students took Issues   in Globalization, Global Citizenship , and Cross-cultural Communications – all offered exclusively to the ILLC students.

You will not only learn together in the classroom, but will have the opportunity to participate in co-curricular programming unique to your LLC as well, including various speakers, talks on international issues, and visits to a variety of events/locations around Denver that intersect with our LLC theme. You will enjoy all of these without any additional cost.

During your ILLC experience, you will also contribute time to our community engagement projects with placements in local international-focused organizations. These projects will enable you to develop your leadership skills while providing mutually beneficial support to these local groups.

The ILLC is an outstanding opportunity to develop your passion and knowledge around the theme of internationalization. I encourage you to apply to the ILLC, or one of our four other Living and Learning Communities: Social Justice, Wellness, Environmental Sustainability, or Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

For additional information about any of the LLCs, please email us at We look forward to seeing you on campus in the fall! 

Warmly, apply
