After having a disappointing freshman year at another college, I had a big decision to make. I needed to find a new university to transfer to.
The second I stepped out of my vehicle and approached the BSU campus, I knew it was meant to be. It is a smaller campus, and I really enjoy that. You are able to connect with many students and faculty. At BSU, you are able to feel like you mean something to the university. You’re not just a student, you’re a member of a community — a community of people that rely on each other to succeed and further their education.
As an avid outdoorsman, I am able to go fishing on some of the best walleye lakes in the world right outside my back door. I can go duck hunting on some of the finest backwaters in the Upper Midwest, and I can go camping in a number of the most beautiful hardwoods in Minnesota.
The Aquatic Biology program here at BSU is like no other. The teachers are willing to listen and go out of their way to help make your college career go as smoothly as possible. The equipment this college has is incredible and the resources you have available to you make the Biology program here mind-boggling.
My suggestion to any incoming students is make yourself known on campus. Become involved, and don’t be scared to talk to the faculty when you have questions. Be free and enjoy your time in college. Open up a bit, and be kind to others. Your college experience will be much enhanced with those simple steps.
