August 24-25, 2023 – College Days

The Leeds First-Year Experience team is working to supplement our online content with opportunities for engagement with your academic and residential cohorts.

Save the date for Leeds Launch Day 2023:

  • Friday, August 25: Leeds Launch Day (required for students, recommended for parents and families)
  • Saturday, August 26: Boulder Bucket List Day (optional events for students)

Be on the lookout for more information, including times and links to register, in your CU email.
