Involvement in campus life is sure to provide you with a more positive college experience and satisfying social life. Just as important though, is how you'll offer your own important contributions to the DU community. Through involvement with community events, you'll enjoy memorable experiences, gain invaluable skills and build experiential knowledge that you'll carry throughout your life.
Whether it's attending the University's traditional events, participating as an athlete or a fan in DU Athletics, becoming a brother or sister in a Fraternity or Sorority organization, or joining one of nearly 300 campus student organizations, there are nearly endless opportunities for you to pursue your passions, build relationships and contribute to the DU community.
