Grad Party 2014 @ Glensheen
May 8, 2014
Glensheen, the historic Congdon Estate, Duluth, Minn.
On May 8, 2014, we celebrated the Bulldog Class of 2014 at the Glensheen Historic Congdon Estate. Despite the misty, often rainy, weather, more than 300 seniors jumped aboard the complimentary shuttle and made their way to Glensheen for mansion tours, hamburgers and hotdogs by Famous Dave’s, drinks, and throwback tunes by KUMD. Champ was seen busting a move on the dance floor. Ever the Bulldogs, our seniors still braved the weather to enjoy Lake Superior with a roaring bonfire and roasted s’mores for dessert. As a thank you for taking the shuttle, attendees had the chance of winning a spot on an exclusive Flashlight Tour lead by Glensheen Director (and alumnus) Dan Hartmann.
Congratulations, Bulldogs, and thanks for a great evening!

January 6, 2014
Newport Beach, California
Quite the debut for UMD’s head football coach Curt Wiese! Not only did he close the Bulldogs season with a record of 11-2 or snatch UMD’s sixth consecutive Northern Intercollegiate Conference championship, but he also won the 2013 Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year award for Division II. Chosen because of his excellence both on and off the field, Coach Wiese became the 2nd coach in UMD’s history to hold the Coach of the Year title, with Bob Nielson having won the award in 2010. Because of his achievement, $50,000 will be awarded to the charities of Coach Wiese’s choice and another $20,000 will be awarded to the UMD Alumni Association to be put towards student scholarships and programming. Congratulations, Coach Wiese!
