The spring/summer 2016 issue of Bemidji State University magazine reflects on the historic tenure of Dr. Richard A. Hanson, who retires in June after six years as the university’s president. The magazine also spotlights Dr. Faith Hensrud, who will succeed Hanson in July as BSU’s 11th president.
The magazine also celebrates the success of the Imagine Tomorrow campaign, which has eclipsed its goal to raise $35 million in support of scholarships and academic programs, while spotlighting the donors who have made the campaign possible and several students and programs which have benefitted from their generosity and support. The spring/summer issue also includes a feature on an alumni-owned silo company which is approaching its 100th anniversary, an English graduate who has used her degree from BSU to pursue opportunities and excitement all over the world, and an alum who has found his calling in copper. In addition, the magazine includes regular features such as Students to Watch, Faculty Achievements, Class Notes and Campus Happenings.
