In “This Week @Minnesota” for Aug. 26-Sept. 2, 2011, we move in with first year students, take a look at all there is to offer from the University of Minnesota at the Minnesota State Fair and take part in Welcome Week. As part of Welcome Week activities, students attended Convocation, received their 2015 tassel, got a pep talk from Football Coach Jerry Kill and formed the M on the field at TCF Bank Stadium.
