• Signature Events

    The Office of Student Activities & Leadership Development strives to enrich the experience of Hamline students by providing fun and developmental activities and services throughout the year. Below is a listing of some of our largest annual events. As details are confirmed, links and additional information will be provided.

    Fall Welcome Week

    During the first week of classes, the Hamline University Programming Board (HUPB) hosts Fall Welcome Week, a series of fun events that give students the opportunity to get together, make friends, and build community. The week culminates in the Welcome Back Block Party, an outdoor event featuring food trucks, inflatables, lawn games, and more! 


    Homecoming Week isn't just for alumni; it is the time when current students go the extra mile to show their school spirit and celebrate the Hamline community. Highlights include the annual Lip Sync competition, the crowning of Homecoming Royalty, and the Homecoming football game, to name a few.

    Family Weekend 

    Bring your family and friends to campus for our annual Family Weekend. Taking place every fall, this weekend of events is a great chance for the families and friends of students to get a taste of life at Hamline. 


    Fireball is Hamline’s annual off-campus, semiformal dance. Every March, students get dressed up, load the buses, and enjoy a night on the town with appetizers, a DJ, and dancing. The location changes annually; past venues include the Machine Shop and Nicollet Island Pavilion.

    Student Activities Awards

    Student Activities & Leadership Development annually recognizes the accomplishments and contributions of the Hamline community. Awards are presented to students, student groups, and advisors who have demonstrated a significant commitment to improving our university.
