The first-ever North Dakota Spirit week will take place at the University of North Dakota

North Dakota Spirit Week
North Dakota Spirit Week

Monday through Saturday (Jan. 9-14) to demonstrate the importance of philanthropy within the University experience.

A series of activities and events throughout the week will create awareness of the North Dakota Spirit Campaign among students, faculty and staff. The campaign’s goal is to raise $300 million for the University and, to date, has raised more than $244 million.

Two students will be selected to receive the Student Spirit Award based on their demonstrated leadership in service, philanthropy, community involvement and academics. The recipients will receive $1,000 each — $500 for their personal tuition and fees, and $500 to be gifted to a UND program of their choice.

Also during Spirit Week, a “Text to Pledge” campaign will enable people to pledge support to an integral part of UND’s school spirit — the UND Pride of the North Marching Band. All pledges received during Spirit Week will benefit the band and support UND’s North Dakota Spirit campaign. During the UND men’s hockey series against Minnesota, Hugo’s Family Marketplace will match every pledge made.

 Spirit Week will show school spirit by “greening out” the Memorial Union and providing the history of philanthropy at UND with unique campaign facts featured throughout parts of campus.
