Bemidji State University

A magazine for alumni and friends

Roots and Branches

The primary goal of everything we do as a university is to prepare our students for meaningful, rewarding lives in their chosen fields. Their success is the measure of our own. This objective motivates and inspires all we do together as administrators, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of Bemidji State. Its pursuit and the results that continue to affirm our purpose can be found throughout this edition of the BSU magazine.


We also make a difference in the world through the work of our students, faculty and staff, as illustrated in the cover story on community and civic engagement. Transformative experiences of service and hands on learning are so important to students, and they also provide enormous benefits to the greater Bemidji region and beyond.


So success begets success. Your support of our students and the university as a whole enables our mission of education and advancement, and for that we are forever grateful.
