What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
like any other school, you need to get involved right away. there's bulldog welcome week where freshmen come in a few days early to learn the grounds, find people to start out the year with, and just in general get to know the school, which is nice. but definitely do stuff outside of class and outside your dorm room right away-it makes all the difference because that's the time you find your niche of people you want to be with. there's a lot of scrambling around during the first few weeks of people switching friend groups, dropping and picking up new activities they like. it's best to do that in the beginning of the year than to try to fit in later when everyone else has already settled.

first 6 weeks.
stay. here.
the people who go home every other weekend the first 6 weeks end up going home for good at the end of the semester. it's because stuff happen over the weekends, people bond, and you come back an outsider. you end going here just to study and then only look forward to going home again. don't do it.

also, don't drink to much. you'll be tempted to go to parties during the week sometimes(school gets to be a bit much and you just want to let go a little) but don't do it. you run too much of a risk of making yourself miserable during class the next day or sleeping through it entirely. wednesdays are the day here people usually go to weekday parties. thursdays are the lowest attendance days. there's drinking no matter what college you go to, but it's up to you if and when you want to do, how you want to do it(be smart, don't get a minor), and where and with who you want to do it too.
it's easy to find people who don't drink, who drink on occasion, and who drink all the time. it's just up to you which of those people you personally want to be.

Apply early, and turn in your housing deposit early! Meet people and get involved, I missed out on a lot first semester because I did not join many clubs.

Research the program you want to go into before applying. I know quite a few people who have gone to Duluth only to find that their program is not good.

The better you do in high school the more money you can get from Duluth for being a new incoming student. Fill out as many scholarship applications as you can, including the FAFSA. Also, apply early! There have been dorm room shortages in the past so applying early guarantees you will get one. Take the ACT and get a good score.
Kristin from Oakdale, MN
The more you show your professors that you care about your grade and the more you get to know them and let them know you more than just your name, the better you will do. Get off campus and go explore! There is countless things to do and go see!
Tracy from Mantorville, MN
Apply as soon as you can you do not want to miss out on the experiences that University of Minnesota Duluth has to offer.
John from Maple Grove, MN
Study for exams, join study groups, the food WILL get old so be sure to have snacks
Sarah from Duluth, MN
Get your applications in early! This determines which dorms you will live in, the sooner you get your application in the better chance you have for better housing.
Don't be afraid to ask questions! The people are there to help you get the best experience poosible, it's their job.
J.H.- freshman at UMD
Just stay focused. It's ok to have fun but you need to get yourself through at the level you want to be at. So always take all the time you need for school first.
