Dragon Welcome Week


    Dragon Welcome Week (formerly New Student Orientation) at MSU-Moorhead is a great way for your organization to get involved and increase interest and participation. Let me tell you how:


    Welcome Week Packets: A great way to promote your organization is to develop a flyer or brochure to be included in the new student information folder. We need 1,200 copies delivered to the Comstock Memorial Union, room 222 by Friday, August 1st, 2014.

    Move-In Crew: (Wednesday, August 20th, 2014) Be the first to welcome new students and their families into the MSU-Moorhead Dragon Family as they move into the residence halls. We are asking for volunteers from 9am - 3pm. There are a variety of opportunities available, each asking for at least a one-hour commitment. The Move-In Crew represents a first and lasting impression to our new students and their families.


    Sidewalk Café: (Saturday, August 23rd, 2014) Organizations and departments may sponsor a booth from 11:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. We encourage groups to bring food, give-a-ways, or other items to hand out (pizza, subs, ice cream, soda, punch, pens, stickers, candy, yo-yo’s, etc.). NOTE: attendance is 800 or more students so groups should plan on enough food for 400. This is held outside near Murray Commons and the Holmquist SLAB. We will supply a six-foot table and two chairs for each booth. You are in charge of providing your own ice.

    Campus Capers:(Saturday, August 23rd, 2014) Join MSU-Moorhead’s most popular variety show! Here’s an opportunity for your campus organization to strut your stuff - advertise who you are, what you’re about, and when you’ll hold your first meeting. All participants must perform a skit.

    Please select one or all of the following:





    Food, Beverage, or Give-a-way Item(s)
