Homecoming truly is a special time of year – a time when alumni, students, staff, faculty, and community members all come together to celebrate their Bulldog pride!
University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) homecoming festivities are being held Sept. 25 – Oct. 1. With homecoming ("HoCo" for short) celebrations earlier than most years, we’re set to have a great time in what we hope to be beautiful shoulder season Duluth weather. This is a classic UMD HoCo celebration, full of community, fun, and sportsmanship.
Full event details can be found on the Homecoming Website.
This week features student-centered and northland-themed days through the week:
- Service Sunday
- Merch Monday
- Top the Tater Tuesday
- Wing and Waffle Wednesday
- Loco for Local Thursday
- Bulldog Country Fair Friday
- Homecoming Game/Tailgating!
Friday, September 30 from 11 am to 3 pm will be a special treat, with the Bulldog Country Fair hosting an array of local food trucks on campus. Ordean Court will be filled with the tastes, smells and community of Oasis Del Norte, Love Creamery, and Iron Waffle, while lawn games and an epic inflatable obstacle course will add to the fun and the excitement.
