Welcome home students, faculty, and staff!
Over the past few weeks, NDMU welcomed our students back to campus. On Wednesday, our new and transfer students moved into Meletia and Doyle. Our newest Gators and their families were greeted by our current NDMU resident assistants, along with faculty, staff, student, and alum volunteers. Move-in day kicked off Orientation and Welcome Week, where our students engaged in leadership and training programs to get them prepared for the start of classes on August 30.
On August 26, the new students were officially welcomed to NDMU during the Cap & Gown Investiture. While NDMU 100 & 200 professors introduced their classes, the students received their IMPRINT journals and signed the honor pledge. Emma Muller ’25 offered the Invocation, with Kelsey Bialozynski ’22 offering her congratulations as the Honor Board Chair.
If you were unable to attend, the ceremony can be viewed on NDMU's YouTube channel.
