BULLDOG WELCOME WEEK

THE MOST ANTICIPATED DAYS OF THE SUMMER

Bulldog Welcome Week 2019: 8/22-8/25

Bulldog Welcome Week is your official start at UMD, and it starts with Move-In Day on Thursday, August 22. Whether you’re new or returning to campus, these events will help you prepare for a successful year and experience what it means to be a Bulldog.

We'll help you move into your residence hall or apartment, get acquainted with campus, and show you how we do things around here. All incoming first-year students are required to attend, even if you are not living on campus. Bulldog Welcome Week is a chance to make new friends and become a part of our community!
