Getting Involved

 

Getting Involved as a college student is very easy!  Bemidji State University has over 100 clubs and organizations for students to check out—there is something for everyone.

  • BeaverLink provides a listing of every organization with contact info to connect.
  • The Beaver Organization Bash is held every fall for students to explore organizations that are of interest.
  • BeaverTreats happens every Thursday in the Hobson Memorial Union to showcase the various organizations on campus.

The benefits of getting involved are not only meeting new friends, finding “like-minded” students, enjoying social activities together, confirming your major, but employers see student involvement as a way to build a skill set.  Examples of some skills you can develop (and employers look for) are:

Many major-specific clubs will provide opportunities to network with employers in the field, take trips to various employer locations and give students the opportunity to interact with faculty advisors outside of the classroom.

Check out the campus calendar for all events including sporting events, arts and culture events  and health and wellness opportunities.  Being involved is a way to make the most of your time at BSU and stay happy and healthy.
