Welcome back UND!

Football against NDSU Bison at Alerus Center.

It is once again that time of year when the community begins bustling with new and returning college students moving into dorms and apartments as they begin a new year at the University of North Dakota!  It is definitely an exciting time as thousands come back to Greater Grand Forks! The official move in date is Friday, August 19, and parents and families will be wearing “Proud of my UND student” buttons as they explore our city.  We hope these families will be given a warm welcome to Greater Grand Forks.  These students and families mean so much to our community! There are a number of activites planned August 19-22 with classes starting on the 22nd.  A complete schedule of events can be found online. With the start of school the UND football season will be upon us!  The Greater Grand Forks Convention & Visitors Bureau is honored to be the sponsor of tailgating at the Alerus Center, and we will be doing some season ticket package giveaways, so be on the lookout!
