Dragon Welcome Week Involvement

  • Dragon Welcome Week 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, brochure or promotional item to be included in the new student information swag bag. We need 1,000 copies delivered to the Comstock Memorial Union, room 113 by Wednesday, August 1, 2018.

    Donations: (Friday, August 24, 2018) You may choose to donate a gift card/certificate or item to be given as a door prize during various Welcome Week events.  If you wish to donate, please send your donation to MSUM First Year Programs, 1104 7th Ave S, Moorhead, MN 56563 or contact us if you would like someone from our office to pick up the donation.

    Downtown Tour: (Saturday, August 25, 2018) Our Student Orientation Counselors will be guiding students downtown during on this day from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. to get them familiar with the area. This is another opportunity to promote your business in a big way! For those businesses wanting to participate, we will provide students with a map to ensure they stop by and see what your business has to offer. Any way you would like to promote your business is completely up to you (coupons, door prizes, etc), we will get the students there to participate. The Downtown Tour is a great way to let our new students know about your business!

    Sidewalk Café: (Saturday, August 25, 2018) 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 if needed.
