Welcome Back, Roadrunners!

Welcome Week is a traditional time during the first week of the semester for first-year, transfer, and/or commuter students to acclimate to campus and enhance their institutional connections through events, co-curricular programs, and networking. Students use this time to learn about various resources that can aid in their success at Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver). Welcome Week is a time to have fun and for departments to connect with students in avantgarde avenues.

We encourage staff presence during MSU Denver Spring 2024 Welcome Week!
