What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When trying to make the final decision on which college to attend, it's actually very difficult to make a "wrong" choice. Every college will provide the essential goal: an education that can be applied towards the future. The differences that set colleges apart from one another are the fellow students attending and the school's personal impression. Understand that you have the potential to succed no matter where you go. Don't worry about finding the "best" place or the top rated facility - instead, investigate those locations that feel compatable and comfortable. From there, it's the friends you meet and the decisions you make that determine the extent and true value of the college experience.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about Bemidji State is that it provides the opportunities of a large university with an intimate, comfortable small school atmosphere. Bemidji State isn't overwhelming in anything it provides, but whatever one may wish to do at, say, the University of Minnesota, he porbably would be able to do at BSU as well. It has everything one could need but without the sheer intimidating size of a major university.

What kind of person should attend this school?

The type of person that should attend Bemidji State is one who will be willing to put forth the effort to perform at his best. BSU has everything that any student could need to succeed in the future, but it is up to the student himself to work hard during school. There is ample opportunity to make the best of the college experience, but the student has complete freedom to decide how valuable that experience really is.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

You need to visit lots of colleges, and really get a feel for where you want to be. Also, look into housing and roommate contracts. Room assignments can play a large factor into your experience. Also, check out colleges that have freshman orientation programs. You meet a lot of people and theres always events planned. Make sure to ask questions, and take pictures when you go on a visit. Also, always pick up a t-shirt from the college you are visiting, that way when you make a choice, you already have a shirt! :)

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who likes the cold, and enjoys being outdoors. A lot of people hunt and fish up here, so on weekends the dorms are pretty empty. Also a lot of people are from the surrounding area so they go home often. A person who is looking for a good teaching degree or wants to play varsity sports should attend here.

The beautiful scenery, the not so big campus, learning opportunnities for students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Look for a college that motivates you to succeed, weather that be through the setting of the college, the learning provided, or the student life. Always look for what will give you the best growth experience to become what you have set out to become and the degree therein.

What's unique about your campus?

The size of classes they usually aren't big enough where you feel like just another number or face in the crowd.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

if you don't know what you want to do with your life take a year to think about it before you go to university, because university is setting you up for the rest of your life. if you don't know what you want then you don't know what to work towards to accomplish your goals and isn't that why your go to university in the first place to make yourself better then you are now?

What's unique about your campus?

my school is a hiring hub for the upper midwest, recently we have gone green $5 of our tuition goes to making our school environmently friendly its a small school that just became a private state university which means that our tuition is stablized compared to the other schools in the mnscu system.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

if you want to be a success at this school you have to do it yourself there are a few professors that really care about your education but there are a lot that could care less.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find that college that feels right and fits your personality. Don't be pressured into making a decision about choosing a college. Make sure it feels like home, because for the next year it will be your home. Try to break away from the traditional campus tours and get a true feel for the school. After a tour, walk around the campus on your own and imagine yourself there everyday. Try not to limit yourself by distance or school size. The perfect school might be across the country or right in your hometown. Again, make sure that the college you choose fits who you are.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

One of the best things about my school is the location. How could it get any better than a lakeside campus? The campus has beautiful views of the lake. There are lots of outdoor activities year-round ranging from canoeing to cross country skiing that would not be possible in other more urban areas. Another great thing about my school is the size. It is small enough that you really get to know you professors and other students, but large enough that you don't have the same people in all your classes.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

This school is rather layed back, especially in its people. Though the school is not that diverse, it is still pretty good for northern rural MN and the students are relitively accepting of both cultural and lifestyle diversity. It's also on a lake which is relaxing

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would say the most important thing is finding that ballence between a school who's departments are big enough to offer quality classes needed to graduate and small enough to really be able to connect with the professors.

What's unique about your campus?

The small classes and departments allow professors and students to really get to know eachother which leads to great professor recomendations and oppertunities.
