Hello Bulldogs,

On behalf of the Bulldog coaching staff and student-athletes, I wanted to personally thank you for the support thus far this season for Bulldog Men's Hockey.  Over 1,200 UMD students packed AMSOIL Arena to see our team's victory over rival Minnesota on October 23rd for a series sweep!  Your commitment to our team is what makes AMSOIL Arena a special place to play.  

We look forward to seeing you this weekend for the last series of men's hockey this semester session when we play Colorado College.  As a reminder, all semester break games are still available to students at a discounted rate.  Let's pack the building with the best student section in the country one more time before we see you again in January.

Remember: Be LOUD, be PROUD, and be RESPECTFUL!

GO BULLDOGS!

October 18, 2021- Call for Students to Paint Mural at Tweed with Jonathan Thunder

The Tweed Museum of Art is offering an opportunity to UMD students to engage with Jonathan Thunder, a multi-disciplinary artist and Red Lake Ojibwe. He is known for his surreal paintings, animated and experimental films, digital installations, and illustration work. Thunder has attended the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) in Santa Fe, NM, and studied Visual Effects and Motion Graphics in Minneapolis, MN, at the Art Institute International. His work has been featured in state, regional, and national exhibitions and in local and international publications since 2003. Thunder is a 2020 Pollock-Krasner Foundation grantee. 

For more information on Jonathan Thunder and his artwork, visit his website at: https://thunderfineart.com/

As part of its commitment to expand art engagement with students at UMD, the Tweed Museum of Art is inviting students to join Jonathan Thunder to create a mural at the museum this fall.

This mural is a reference to Minnesota discussions around police in Black and Indigenous communities: a cop car, the group Dixie Cups in Mardi Gras “tribal” regalia, a traditional dancer in plague mask, a Nokomis (grandma) mixing with hip-hop turntables and wearing a thunderbird medallion, a breakdancer, and references to how mainstream colonial media represents Indigenous peoples.

Current UMD students interested in working with Jonathan on this mural project (content and design and/or the painting) should contact Dr. Karissa White Isaacs (Tweed Museum) at [email protected]

Planning Session for Students at the Tweed Museum of Art:
Join us at Tweed on Thursday, October 21 from 1-3 p.m. to meet Jonathan Thunder, who will consult with interested students about the mural and its content and design. You can arrive at any time during this session. Also at this time, you can sign up for the mural painting session. If you cannot attend this planning event, you can still sign up anytime by contacting Karissa White Isaacs at [email protected]

Mural Painting:
Painting of the mural will begin Wednesday, November 3 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., and Thursday, November 4 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Additional dates (TBD) the following week may be scheduled during open museum hours. Students will be notified of their assigned painting date and time slot. 

Due to COVID-19 precautions, student participation in the mural painting will be limited.

FREE to UMD students!!

FREE to Staff/Faculty/Dependents over 18 and Retirees who are enrolled in UPlan at UMD. **Please note we are not offering the high dose vaccine. All others who are not enrolled through UPlan should call their local clinic or visit one of the local pharmacies offering flu shots
To safely provide this service to our campus, patients without an appointment will be taken, but due to increase in COVID activity, an appointment is preferred.

Every fall, UMD Health Services, the College of Pharmacy and UMD Employee Health & Wellbeing Center provide a campus wide flu clinic. Flu vaccinations are provided to students free of charge with presentation of Student ID. Staff, faculty and retirees (and their dependents 18yrs+) who have UPlan insurance are also covered free of charge. Flu vaccinations will be given to anyone over the age of 18 years old. Dependents under the age of 17 are advised to be vaccinated at their primary physicians office or other flu vaccination clinics in the area.

Health Services encourages the campus community to be vaccinated to protect themselves from the flu virus and to protect others that we live, learn and work with on campus (and at home). If you have questions about the flu vaccine, visit the Minnesota Department of Health website.

September 20, 2021 - Message from Head UMD Football Coach Curt Wiese

Hello Bulldogs!

Just prior to kickoff at last Saturday night's UMD Football game, our football team joined members of our military and followed the UMD Marching Band through an energized tailgate fueled by the support of Operation One Voice - a group that supports veterans. This incredible energy brought by YOU, THE STUDENTS OF UMD set the tone for the next three hours at Malosky Stadium. In front of a record-breaking crowd of 6,536 fans, and with a boisterous record-setting 2,000+ student section, we beat #3 Minnesota State Mankato 30-10. We can't thank YOU - THE STUDENTS OF UMD enough for supporting the Bulldogs and packing the stands!

We hope to see you as we return home on 25th of September at 6:00 pm. Have a great week and GO DOGS!

September 7, 2021 - What is one thing you can do?

Roadmap map image

There is a lot to think about as we get back to campus and academic life. It may help to focus on just one thing you can actively do to start you year off on the right foot. Check out the Student Success Roadmap and choose one item from your year to focus on in these first couple of weeks.

• First year students: Develop friendships and get involved on campus. Did you see an activity at the activity fair you might be interested in?
• Sophomores: Work on student organizational interests now that you're on campus! Also focus on identifying and choosing you major this year.
• Juniors: You get to dig in and challenge yourself this year. Will you complete an internship, make plans for grad school, or conduct an undergraduate research project?
• Seniors: Finishing strong is important! Seek out ways to round out your area of study, put post-grad plans into place, and reflect on your journey.

Visit the Student Success Roadmap for ideas.
