Volunteer Opportunities

Bulldog Day of Service

A few hours of service in our local communities can make a huge impact! Choose an organization and we will invite alumni to lend a helping hand. In the past, we've worked with Second Harvest Heartland, the Special Olympics, and FIRST Upper Midwest Regional Robotics. The possibilities are endless! Contact alumni@d.umn.edu to learn more.

Bulldogs of the Last Decade (BOLD)

Bulldogs of the Last Decade is an alumni organization affiliated with UMD Alumni Relations. The purpose of BOLD is to develop, maintain, and foster relationships with recent alumni, along with creating opportunities that enrich the personal growth and professional lives of our graduates.

Bulldogs on the Block

You may be miles away from UMD, but that doesn’t mean you’re alone! Celebrate and connect with other alumni in your area at Bulldogs on the Block, our nationwide social event. This alumni-hosted event brings together Bulldogs in 20+ cities for free, informal get-togethers on the same night every year. From drinks after work to restaurant meals, Bulldogs on the Block events come in all shapes and sizes. It’s simple: pick a place to host in your area, and Alumni Relations will assist you in promoting and providing tools for a great party! Learn more here.

Grad Party

As Bulldog alumni, it’s our responsibility to welcome newcomers to our alumni community! Celebrate with graduating seniors each spring by assisting with setup, registration, games, and much more at Grad Party. This senior send-off is planned all year by students, and is attended by hundreds of soon-to-be alumni. Contact alumni@d.umn.edu to learn more.

UMD Mentor Program

Alumni and other professionals are partnered 1:1 with current students for professional mentoring. Mentors serve as a resource for students, and help them prepare for life after UMD.
