Step Three: Attend an Event

The Bulldog Bash Accepted Students Day has become a favorite Spring tradition. Each year, Billera Hall is transformed into a thematic masterpiece for this an annual celebration. Accepted students and their families can get to know one another, the faculty, the campus, and even have a chance to win prizes and scholarships. Future Bulldogs can also visit a clubs and activities fair, take a tour of the residence halls, and more.

The DSU Preview /Spring 0rientation Day is for deposited students and parents. Your invitation will arrive in the mail in early May. This event is required of all first-time students. You'll be introduced to various functions of campus life, including Character U, the First-Year Experience at DeSales University. Photos will be taken at this time for your DeSales Student ID card, so get ready to smile :)
