If you like to cheer, BSU is the right school. With a full year of intercollegiate sports, you'll have more than a few occasions to don your green Bemidji sweatshirt. Our football team enjoys a lakeside field where it isn't unheard of to kick field goals right into Lake Bemidji. BSU competes in NCAA Division II for: Baseball, Basketball (Men's and Women's), Football, Golf (Men's and Women's), Soccer, Softball, Tennis, Track/XC and Volleyball. We are in northern Minnesota, so of course hockey is a big deal. Our hockey team competes at the Division I level, and they play at the new Sanford Center across the lake from BSU campus.
