What makes Bemidji State University different from others?
Bemidji State University
Bemidji State University is located right near Lake Bemidji, offering wonderful lake views throughout campus. BSU gives off a 'northwoods' feel and gives many outdoorsy opportunities to students which draws a ton of students who like the outdoors. Also, once the lake freezes over in the winter time, students and faculty/staff can park on the ice for free! There is just a few things that make Bemidji State University stand out.

I like that Bemidji State University is a very social and helpful learning environment. I transferred here in the middle of the term and It felt natural by the end of the first week.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Bemidji gets very cold in the winter so bring a jacket. The professors at BSU are very easy to talk to, especially if you need help on a topic.

It's a small school. The food is okay. I applied for the loans through the school and wasn't able to do work-study.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Other people are dumb. They're gonna smoke weed and drink even if the campus has rules against it. Be careful. Go to your classes. You are paying a lot of money for them.
