When you arrive at the University of Denver, we want you to know that you are in a supportive and caring environment, with students, faculty, and staff that are eager to help you in your journey. There are many activities you will participate in during your Discoveries Orientation week (such as meeting with your faculty advisor, connecting with fellow students, and registering for classes) designed to assist you in making a smooth transition to campus. As you settle in to life at DU, begin to take advantage of the opportunities that will help you develop new skills, connections, and overall wellness.
Students may bring any writing project to the Writing Center, located in our beautiful Anderson Academic Commons. Undergraduate and graduate student consultants will work with writers in every subject area, from engineering to English and business to biology. Assistance with brainstorming, developing a thesis, organizing, revising, using sources, and editing is offered. Help at the Writing Center is meant to foster strong critical thinking and decision-making, and writers are able to meet with a Writing Center consultant once per day per writing project.

CME offers all DU students a variety of opportunities for involvement and leadership in programming that includes retreats, dialogues, movie discussions, and peer facilitation and mentorship.
Health and Counseling
The Health & Counseling Center is an on-campus facility that provides a wide range of on-site medical and mental health services. Physicians, nurses, psychologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other professionals staff the DU HCC. We see individuals with a wide range of concerns from birth control, travel immunizations, stress, homesickness, career decision-making, relationship problems and GLBTIQ-related issues, to more serious problems such as eating disorders, trauma, or depression and anxiety disorders. All students enrolled for academic credit (full-time or part-time, undergraduate or graduate) may use the HCC.
Religious & Spiritual Life
The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life helps students maintain connections with the faith traditions of their youth, working with campus ministers of various religions. In addition, the University Chaplain is always available for conversation and counsel to help all students explore their spiritual possibilities. Visit their website at www.du.edu/religiouslife.
Center for World Languages and Cultures
One of the tenets of our University is global citizenship - the Center for World Languages and Cultures prepares students for living and working in an international community. From summer language courses to tutoring and conversation groups, the CWLC is available as a resource for all members of the University.
