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 have worked with Second Harvest Heartland to package food for a neighbor in need, although, the possibilities are endless!

State Fair

This is BULLDOG COUNTRY. Every year in August alumni gathers at the Minnesota State Fair to share and celebrate their UMD experience with fair-goers and other alumni and staff at a booth located in the U of M Building.

Farm Fest

Each September the UMD Farm hosts a festival to kick off fall. Alumni can volunteer for a variety of activities ranging from assisting with parking, caramel apple station, face painting, and much more. The UMD Farm is located on Jean Duluth Road in Duluth.

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 nation-wide social event. From drinks after work to restaurant meals, barbecues on the beach to picnics in the park, get together’s come in all shapes and sizes. It’s simple; pick a place to host in your area, and the Office of Alumni Relations will assist you in promoting and providing tools for a great party!

Networking Night

Each year, we host an annual networking event that brings UMD students and area professionals together for an evening of professional development. For most students, this is the first time interacting in a networking atmosphere, and with that comes the need for a little coaching. Alumni are encouraged to sign up as an official networking night connector. The connector’s role is to encourage and empower students to network with other professionals in the room and to help facilitate introductions. 

Grad Party

As Bulldog alumni, it’s our responsibility to welcome the new-comers into our alumni community! Celebrate the graduating seniors by assisting with set-up, registration, games and much more at the senior grad party. Added bonus: Every party has a different them … 2018 is DISCO!
