New Student Welcome DayThe Optional New Student Welcome Day is a one-day program you can choose as an additional part of your New Student Welcome Experience. While this is optional for all incoming students, we encourage incoming first-year and transfer students to join us on campus to connect with academic advisors, faculty, student organizations and the departments that will support you and your family as new members of our community. There is no cost to attend the day program and each student may bring one guest. 

The goals of our optional New Student Welcome Day are to introduce you to academic resources and opportunities that will support your academic endeavors, engage you with campus history and introduce you to other new incoming students and families, and connect you with the campus-wide resources that will support your health, belonging and well-being during your CU Boulder journey. 

To ensure that guests have a good experience, New Student Welcome Day space is limited. There is no cost for students to attend and each student may bring one guest. Please register early to ensure your space. Walk-in space is not guaranteed. 

Registration will be available in early November.
