You're invited! Bengal Bound Days - July 19 and August 13, 2021
Join us in person on campus to have some fun and tie up any loose ends before classes start!
Bengal Bound Days on July 19 and August 13 are an opportunity to tour campus, socialize with faculty, staff and students and enjoy some fun and games. You can prepare for the upcoming semester by enrolling in classes (if you haven't already), completing checklist items necessary for the start of the semester, and experiencing the beauty of our campus in Summer. Even if you're still in the decision-making process, we welcome and encourage you to come see what LIFE is like at UMFK. You have two options to attend and are welcome to enjoy Bengal Bound Days on both July 19 and August 13 with us. On July 18, UMFK will be hosting an evening of games and events such as a hike on Fort Kent's trail system, a bonfire by the Fish River, and tons more! On August 13-14, the surrounding community of Fort Kent will be celebrating the annual Acadian Festival with events like the Ploye Festival, Muskie Fishing Derby, 5K Color Run, and more!

To attend Bengal Bound Days, you will be asked to provide proof of the COVID-19 vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test within the last 48 hours to check-in and participate in the day's events. Thank you for understanding our efforts to keep you, our students and staff, as well as our campus and community safe as we prepare for the upcoming semester.
