Hey there! My name is Emma Niessink and I am from Brandon, S.D.—about six hours south of Bemidji. I am a freshman at BSU, majoring in creative and professional writing! I play violin in the Chamber Orchestra and I love to spend my time reading, writing, in the hammock, or kayaking with friends.
I am so blessed to call BSU home! I chose this college because of its extraordinary creative writing program, along with the proximity of the campus to the lake . Nothing beats the lake life! I appreciate how eco-friendly and outdoor-loving BSU (and its people) are.
If you’re an incoming freshman, I highly suggest living in Tamarack, anything above the forth floor and lake view… makes for beautiful mornings!
