“All of the Bulldog Catholic events I’ve been to have been a blast. Even if it’s the first one you go to, you feel like you’ve been there for hundreds because of the kindness and hospitality of anyone involved. Also, a bunch of Bulldog Catholic events have free food and what’s there not to love about free food?”

“My favorite part about being a part of the bulldog catholic community is just how open and welcoming everyone is, it’s makes you feel right at home the second you walk through the doors or even just meet up with someone else from there. I definitely felt all the love when I started coming to things especially since I don’t go to UMD and I Didn’t really know anyone there but I was welcomed so quickly and just felt so at home.”

Nate Specht

“College goes by fast. If you live in the past you’re going to miss the best memories right in front of you. I try to live my life with joy each day.”
