CHOICES Life Skills Program


Student-Athletes will face many different experiences throughout their academic careers, and thereafter. To help student-athletes meet these challenges head on, Bemidji State's Department of Athletics will help offer the Life Skills needed to overcome these challenges while developing and improving skills they need to succeed in life.

The goal of the Life CHOICES Program at BSU is to develop the leadership and Life Skills that students need to become healthy and successful members of a global community, while empowering students to make responsible decisions, especially when facing risky situations. Within this, the program will implement and evaluate alcohol-related education and prevention programs, as well as increase collaboration between the campus athletic department, other campus organizations, and community organizations involved in alcohol education and awareness initiatives.

The Life CHOICES Program at BSU is partly based on the NCAA CHAMPS (Challenging Athletes Minds for Personal Success) program that provides educational opportunities that promote the following areas:
