“It’s a time where students get to come, meet a lot of new people, find their place here at CU and start to build their community,” said Melanie Marquez Parra, Assistant Director of Communications.

It’s also a community effort. More than 1,000 volunteers will also be helping families and students get settled in.

“There is so much to enjoy. We have dining, a rec center, and we have our new feature which is posts for setting up hammocks and slack lines,” added Marquez Parra.

The new residence hall also features a state-of-the-art gaming area designed to promote a sense of togetherness among new freshmen.

“The key is to get students together,” said Associate Marketing Director Katie Theiler.
