Pre-Orientation Opportunities

FLYTE: First LEP Year Total Experience

LEP's comprehensive transition support begins with the First LEP Year Total Experience (FLYTE). FLYTE launches in the summer with virtual information sessions and access to Digital LEP, our home on Canvas. At the end of the summer, FLYTE culminates with FLYTE-OTA Weekend, our pre-orientation weekend for incoming LEP students and their families, ensuring an on time arrival (OTA). FLYTE Weekend includes early move-in, meeting your LEP Academic Counselor, social events to get to know other incoming LEP students, and informational sessions for family members in attendance. Incoming students and family members who wish to attend FLYTE-OTA Weekend must register. Registration information for Summer 2022 FLYTE will be posted in June 2022. All virtual sessions are open to any incoming LEP student and their family members.

"It was a perfect transition into college and helped me not get overwhelmed by orientation week and classes. It helped me make friends and learn the campus and more about DU." –LEP 2019 First Year Student
"We are so pleased with our daughter's choice in DU and LEP. This...weekend is the exact launch she needed to get her feet wet and meet others, learn extensively about LEP and settle into the campus. Thank you so much for your giving natures, the leaders who dedicated so much time to this weekend and for your sincerity in leading with heart. We are so pleased that we, as parents, get to spend time here at DU over the next four years." –LEP 2019 First Year Parent
