Welcome, Mighty Lions! New Students Discover CDU

The Office of Student Life hosted our newest students during Discover CDU in the month of August. These students are now part of an engaged community. The sessions showed the array resources geared to help all of our students excel throughout their CDU career and beyond. 

Announced this year is our new mascot, the Mighty Lion!
The CDU mascot was created to promote school spirit, pride and an overall identity for the institution. We are the CDU Mighty Lions! The Lion is the king of the jungle - wise, brave, and protective; characteristics of a leader. That is what CDU students strive for.
