Hear from outstanding faculty from across campus. Some examples from previous year's events have included various topics such as “Crime Scene Investigation,” “A Quick Look at General Chemistry,” or “Hamilton & Me.” All lectures and sessions are designed to give you a taste of the academics you will have access to here at CU Boulder.

Additionally, you have the opportunity to meet with faculty and staff from your major and program allowing you to create meaningful connections and allow you to learn more about academic opportunities at CU Boulder.

Meet current students from different programs by joining one of our many tours of campus, the Engineering Center, Environmental Design building tour, Leeds School of Business tour, general campus tour, and so much more!

Admitted Student Day is the only day where all our residence halls open their doors to allow you a look at what living on campus is all about. Meet with current students, residential advisors, and hall directors to learn more about our communities on-campus.

We call ourselves the Buff family largely because of the support and resources that students have access to on our campus. Speak with CU Boulder experts about financial aid, health and wellness services, academic support, community partnerships and more! Be sure to also stop by the Office of Admissions in the Regent Administrative Center if you’re ready to become a part of our Buff family!

Tips to Prepare for the Day

  • Attire: Throughout the day, you will be walking around campus so we encourage you to wear comfortable walking shoes. Dress casual and since weather in Boulder can change quickly, we suggest bringing extra layers and sunscreen.

  • Look at the schedule ahead of time to build out your options! We suggest that you “divide and conquer” - choose the sessions that are most interesting to you and send other members of your party to gather information from other sessions.
  • Follow us on social media @FutureBuffs and look forward to an awesome social media challenge where you can win Buff swag!
