Homecoming 2016 at Bemidji State University celebrated leadership, tradition and vision. Alumni returned to campus to share their professional experiences and advice by serving on Alumni Leaders in the Classroom panels. Dr. Faith Hensrud was inaugurated as BSU’s 11th president. Distinguished alumni and generous donors were honored in style at the Honors Gala, which also marked the successful conclusion of Bemidji State’s Imagine Tomorrow campaign.
Saturday brought the community downtown for the Homecoming parade, and fans filled Chet Anderson Stadium for the Beavers’ victory over Minot State. Winning meant a joyous plunge into Lake Bemidji and fueled a football reunion and a street dance on Beltrami Avenue.
