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 family 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 Holland Centennial Commons Building 1st floor. This is the biggest building on campus so you can’t miss it. There are two parking lots just west of this building. Park in either lot. 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).
