Welcome Weekend Fall 2021

Welcome Weekend is a mandatory on-campus event for all new students. Activities will take place August 20-23, with classes beginning at 4:00 p.m. on August 23. 

Welcome Weekend is the official kick-off to the fall semester and the second part of the new student experience. You will have the chance to meet other new/current students in small groups with New Student Program leaders.

  • Explore curricular and co-curricular activities, resources, and services that support a successful transition to Minot State.
  • Engage in interactions designed to build and maintain relationships with students, faculty and staff.
  • Encourage challenging and supportive dialogues that promote self-reflection, critical thinking and appreciation of diversity.
  • Be provided with an understanding of campus culture and the culture of the Minot community.
