If college "move in day"  conjures images of you and your parents lugging some pillows, blankets and a stereo into your dorm room, then them waving  goodbye and driving  off, leaving you to your new life ... well,  you'd never recognize what's happening on the UMD campus this week.

Bulldog Welcome Week offers every kind of help and fun available (including lugging the TV, fridge and more upstairs) for nervous freshmen about to start a life on their own ... and their bereft parents.
