Bulldogs Unleashed!


Welcome Week starts now!

Bulldog Welcome Week

Duluth adds a small town to its population this week, as UMD welcomes more than 10,000 students to campus.

The action begins with the unloading of the new incoming freshman on Tuesday, August 25 and barrels through the week until the first day of classes on Monday, August 31.
