First-Year/Transfer students have the important advantage of being the first students to register at DBU during summer’s First-Year/Transfer Registration! This is where life as an official DBU Patriot begins as students experience life in the DBU Residence Hall for the first time.

The overnight, two-day orientation and registration event provides students with several opportunities to connect with classmates, faculty, and staff through a variety of exciting Student Life activities. At the culmination of the Orientation, new DBU students ring the Liberty Bell and are welcomed as official members of the DBU family!
