Dr. Joseph Ritter has been named dean of the College of Individual & Community Health at Bemidji State University. He will be the first dean of the college, which is being created as part of an overall restructuring effort taking effect on July 1.
Will Weaver, professor emeritus of English, challenged the 1,082 members of Bemidji State University’s Class of 2018 to “be open to surprise, to chance, to the lives of people close at hand. You have no idea how that stranger might affect your life — or you theirs.”
Dozens of students in Bemidji State’s Class of 2018 celebrated their status as college graduates with custom-decorated mortar boards. We couldn’t catch everyone, but we were able to get photos of more than 50 of them. Congratulations, graduates!
