Emergency Notification System

Beaver Alert

Beaver Alert is how the university shares important information about campus closures and BSU/neighborhood emergencies as soon as they happen. During an emergency or campus closure, university officials will send communication to students, employees and registered community members with the location, specific emergency and recommended safety measures. The message(s) will be brief and to the point with additional information being disseminated through an all-community email as soon as it is available.

If you have any questions, please send an email to publicsafety@bemidjistate.edu or call 218.755.3888
