Campus Welcomes Future Lynx at Admitted Students Day

April 25, 2023

More than 800 people—including nearly 400 admitted students—experienced what life is like as a Lynx at CU Denver’s biggest-ever Admitted Students Day on April 21. Members of fall’s incoming class and their families were given interactive tours, had an opportunity to connect with schools and colleges, attended informational sessions, and were treated to a concert at the end of the day performed by College of Arts & Media students.  

“I am most excited to meet new people and have the opportunity to live in downtown Denver,” said incoming student Nick Peters at Friday’s event. His sentiments were shared by his peers, with attendees excitedly buzzing about future plans and the opportunities their next adventure has in store.

Over lunch, Chancellor Michelle Marks visited with the new Lynx and welcomed them into the community. “At CU Denver, we believe in providing personalized support to our students and their families to not only make the transition to college seamless, but also set you up for success,” Marks told guests. 

During the event, students who had completed their pre-registration requirements were able to register for their first semester of classes, which officially marks the beginning of new-student enrollment for fall 2023.  

In less than four short months, these students will return to campus to begin their journeys as CU Denver students! 

Hundreds of admitted students and their families convened on campus for the annual Admitted Students Day.
