Dragon Welcome Week Involvement

  • Dragon Welcome Week at Minnesota State University Moorhead is a great way for your organization to get involved and increase interest and participation. Here's 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 Monday, August 12, 2019.

    Donations: 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 by Monday, August 12, 2019, or contact us by Monday, August 12, 2019 if you would like someone from our office to pick up the donation.

    Downtown Fargo Tour: (Saturday, August 24, 2019) Our Student Orientation Counselors will be guiding students to Downtown Fargo 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 Fargo Tour is a great way to let our new students know about your business!

    Sidewalk Café: (Saturday, August 24, 2019) 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. Attendance is typically around 750 or more students. This is held outside the residence halls. We will supply a six-foot table and two chairs for each booth. Non-MSUM organizations and departments promoting job and/or volunteer opportunities should work with the Career Development Center (samantha.gust@mnstate.edu or 218.477.2202). Registration deadline is August 12, 2019. Any Late registrations will be added to a wait list.
