    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

A Look At the Weekend

This weekend marks the very first weekend back in Duluth for the school year!  While we will all be unpacking and settling into our apartments, dorms, and houses for the majority of both days, it is important that you have a little fun during your last weekend of freedom, as well.  There are many different events that will be going on this weekend, both on campus and off campus, that deserve your attendance! 

Saturday: Off-Campus

Bayfront Pride Festival

This get-together will be taking place from 11 to 7pm on Saturday in Bayfront Festival Park.  There will be food and vendors, live musical entertainment, and lots of activities and events to participate in.  Beer tent  for those of age!

Exploratory 5K Run

Support the Duluth Children’s Museum Spark Capital Campaign.  The cost to participate for adults is $25 and the run takes place in Lester Park at 10:00 am.  Kids can also participate in a 1/4 mile run for free and enjoy lots of other activities.  Great cause, great way to let out some packing stress!

Renegade Improv

Just like every Friday and Saturday night, Teatro Zuccone will be featuring their improvisation show for gutsy artists beginning at 10:30 pm.  Tickets are $5 and go on sale at the door at 9:30 pm.  Always an amusing and fun experience to witness, so if you need a little comic relief, check it out.

Grandma’s Sports Garden

Saturday night staple for college students.  Dancing, drinks, and lots of music for the 21+ crowd.  Rowdy, but hilarious.


Saturday: On-Campus:

Building Relationships to Last with Maura Cullen

Dr. Cullen will be giving our first keynote of the year with this address on building inclusive and collaborative relationships with those around you.  It is free to the public and begins at 10:00 am in the Mitchell.  Bring a few roommates or buddies from the dorms and open your minds.


Sunday: Off-Campus

Open Mic Night

Come to the Thirsty Pagan Brewing Company at 10:00 pm on Sunday for some music and singing from local bands and soloists.  This free event is always super chill and a great way to cap off a busy weekend.
