Purchase tickets at the Kirby Info Desk (now located in The Statesman office) during normal business hours through May 3. If you need to make other ticket purchase arrangements, please call the Alumni Relations Office at 218-726-7164. You will need your student ID when purchasing your ticket, and only cash will be accepted as payment (sorry, no checks or credit cards). Reservations are required and you must present your student ID and driver’s license for admittance the day of the Grad Party.

This Grad Party is open to all graduating seniors (December 2012, May 2013, or summer 2013).

Celebrate with your friends and classmates before you finish your undergraduate career at UMD, while also crossing off 'Tour Glensheen' from your College Bucket List. You don't want to miss experiencing the beautiful park-like lawns along the shores of Lake Superior (especially if you've never visited in the past four years).  

Sorry, graduates only --- no guests! Space is limited.

We encourage you to carpool or take the complimentary shuttle bus from UMD. The bus will depart from Maroon Lot B along College Street at 5:45 pm and 6:15 pm. Two departures are scheduled from Glensheen at 8:15 pm and 9 pm.

Dress for the weather --- we'll party whether it rains or shines! Don't worry --- the snow will melt!

Questions? Email or call 218-726-7164.

Did you know? Because the home, stables, and greenhouses went through 100 tons of coal each year, manholes were created along London Road into which the coal was delivered, and then auger-fed into coal bins inside Glensheen. This eliminated the need for the large trucks to rumble into the estate for deliveries.
