Homecoming week is October 19-23

To help keep UMD students, faculty, staff, and community members safe and healthy this fall, we will not hold any in-person activities for Homecoming this fall. Instead, we are preparing a week of virtual events that will give you an inside look at a variety of places at UMD. Below is a list of some of the activities we have planned for Homecoming Week, October 19-23. Click on the tabs above to navigate through the Homecoming week!
