Important Arrival Instructions

Dear Rio Grande Semester Students,

Wow, just a few more days before we’re all together in Colorado! We’re writing to let you know the plan for your arrival at Denver International Airport and the Dragons shuttle runs we will be running to get you to Boulder (for those arriving via plane). We will have two van shuttles being driven by your instructors on September 15th.

After you exit the plane, take the airport train to the main terminal where the baggage claim is located. First collect your checked bag and then please make your way to the open-air terrace at the Westin Hotel that is attached to the main airport terminal. The Westin Hotel is the big bluish green glass building on the South end of the airport and there will be airport signs directing you there. An instructor will be waiting outside wearing a Dragons shirt within 20 minutes of the scheduled shuttle departure time. If you arrive earlier, you may want to get a snack or find a spot to hang in the airport before heading to the meet-up location outside. The first shuttle will leave the airport to go to Boulder at noon and the second shuttle will leave at 2pm, or until the last student has arrived. If you have any delays or difficulties on your travel day, please call our offices at 303-413-0822.

If arriving to Boulder by car or other transportation, please plan to be dropped off at 741 Pearl St between 1-3pm. 

You will have had a long day of travel in public spaces so please make sure you are taking the appropriate precautions while traveling. When you meet the group please make sure you are wearing a mask and maintaining 6 feet of distance. Our first van rides will mean we will have to be a bit closer in a shared space, so we will be wearing our masks in the vehicle with the windows partially down for airflow. Thank you for helping get this course started off right by taking COVID precautions seriously.

Thanks everyone and see you shortly!
