Golden Eagle Welcome Weekend

Welcome to the University of Minnesota Crookston! We are glad you are here and about to become a part of the Golden Eagle family!

Fall 2022 Move-In Day/Welcome Weekend

Orientation Leaders

Thursday, August 25, 2022 - Sunday, August 28. 2022

Research indicated that students who attend orientation perform better in college and are more likely to graduate than those who do not attend. Orientation is required of all new students to UMC. We have a full weekend of educational, informational, and all out FUN planned just for you!

As a Transfer (or non-traditional) student we understand that you have "been there" & "done that", so we offer you the choice on how you would like to get started here at UMC. You have the option of joining us all on Thursday, August 25, for the weekend of Orientation events, or you can choose to attend the MANDATORY Sunday, August 28, "Transition Crookston" Orientation for transfer and non-traditional students ONLY. See schedules below.
