Welcome to Bemidji, President Hoffman

Dr. John Hoffman arrived at the Bemidji State University campus bright and early on the morning of July 1, 2022, for the first official day of his presidency at BSU and Northwest Technical College.

His day included settling into his new office on the third floor of Deputy Hall; meeting with BSU Student Ambassadors to shoot his first presidential TikTok and personalized video messages for students, parents and alumni; trying to figure out a new email system; visiting with Greater Bemidji leaders at Bemidji’s downtown Mayflower Building; and holding a press briefing with Lakeland Public Television, the Bemidji Pioneer and Bemidji Now at Northwest Technical College.

The video above recaps his day — don’t miss your first opportunity to meet Jackson, the first dog.
