MEET YOUR ADMISSIONS REP
Hello! I am the proud admissions representative for central and south central Minnesota. As a Minnesota native and BSU graduate (’09), I can answer any questions about student life on campus, academic programs, recreational opportunities, residence halls, and the great community of Bemidji. My goal is to help prospective students and their families determine if BSU is the right college for them. If you have any questions about Bemidji State University, feel free to contact me!
Things I enjoy in my free time:
Most of my free time is spent with friends and family, enjoying the entertainment and outdoor recreation that northern Minnesota has to offer. Sports are a big part of my life. So, in my free time, I also enjoy attending BSU athletic events on campus and BSU Men’s and Women’s Hockey in the new state-of-the-art Sanford Center.
What I studied in college:
Initially, I enrolled at BSU with the intention of becoming a social studies teacher. After taking a variety of courses, I became attracted to the degree program in Sports Management. I started my experience at BSU in the fall of 2005, graduated in 2009 with a B.A. in Sports Management and a Minor in Business Administration and a specialty in Coaching. I completed graduate school at BSU in 2011 after participating in the Sports Studies program. I am currently working towards finishing my Thesis and achieving a Master's degree.
My favorite place on campus:
I would have to say that my favorite place on campus is the Gillett Fitness Center. The Gillett Fitness Center is the home of the BSU Campus Recreation Department, which encompasses the Outdoor Programming Center, BSU intramural sports, weight training facilities, workout/dance studio, and a number of activity courts. The Gillett Fitness Center is a hub of student activity during the school year and is where I spent a lot of my time as a student!
Advice for prospective students:
When choosing a college, make sure to choose the school that best fits you and your personality. I chose BSU as an undergraduate student because of it's unique, "best of both worlds" environment. I was able to attend a 4-year university that provided the atmosphere and resources of a large school, but the class-size and personal attention of a small school. Also, do not be forced into choosing a major. Make sure to pursue a program you are genuinely interested in. It helps to to do some research! Let me know if I can help you out.
