The Be Boulder for a Day program is a day long program that provides an opportunity to experience what it's like to be a student on campus and sit in on select classes, dine in one of our award-winning dining halls, tour campus, meet with academic program faculty and staff, talk with current students and learn about the next steps in becoming an official CU Buff!


Students who have applied or been admitted to CU Boulder and are awaiting their admission decision OR students who have been admitted as a freshman. If you are a prospective student who has not yet applied to CU Boulder, we recommend you attend an Explore CU program or an information session and campus tour. If you are a transfer student, we recommend you attend a Transfer Information Session.
