spring 2021 new student orientation

thursday, january 21, 2021, 2:30 pm - 8:00 pm


student orientation is on thursday, january 21, 2021 and is an important part of welcoming you to denver seminary and setting the stage for your first year. orientation consists of a variety of opportunities to hear from key leaders, connect with fellow students, and learn about specific aspects of your degree program. we hope you leave feeling valued as a new member of our community and ready to embark on this new journey.

students regularly point to orientation as the place they met their closest seminary friends and learned one or two nuggets that gave them courage to persist in their program. we highly encourage you to attend!
