Before You Arrive

As you prepare to attend Freshman Orientation, here are some tips to ensure that you have a productive and enjoyable experience:

  • Family Members – Your parents, or other student support members, are invited to join you at orientation. We have a break-out session designed specifically for them to understand how to help you succeed. Please indicate the number of family members attending with you on the online form.
  • Location – DSU is located at 225 S 700 University Avenue. Whether you are driving on I-15 heading north or south, take the St. George Boulevard exit (exit 6) and head west. Turn left on 700 E / University Ave and head south for two blocks. Orientation kicks off at the Avenna Center / Cox Auditorium. Check out this map for specific location.
  • Getting things done – While on campus, we encourage you to also take care of any other details, including meeting with a financial aid representative, taking any needed placement tests, or checking out housing options.
  • Picture I.D. – Dress appropriately to be ready to have your picture taken for your I.D. card (no hats, no sunglasses).
