As a first-year ENVD student, you are automatically enrolled in the Environmental Design First-Year Experience Program. This program is designed to bridge experiences in the classroom to opportunities for further intellectual, social and cultural enhancement as a design student and community member of the CU Boulder campus.
You will take part in co-curricular programming that promotes active engagement in your academics, community organization through student groups and DEI & allyship events that promote growth in understanding the diverse talent that exists in design spaces today. As you prepare for key pathways within our program, we offer ways to engage early in what it means to be a part of the Environmental Design community, as well as within your major.
Our mission is to provide academic and social engagement between faculty, staff and students to ensure you find the right community and experience to be successful here as a design student.
