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!

2019 Orientation & Registration signups begin in February right here on this page.

Come back in February to choose a session and register!
