    I love my friends at BSU and I made plenty right away. I was a searching Christian when I came here, and after the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship welcomed me, I made lots of friends and found it to be very warm and that the people love to discuss and analyze Bible passages...not follow them blindly and believe just what churches say, but find our own understanding. As for the weather, it gets to -60 degrees, I'm's very cold and the lake freezes over. But the lake is beautiful year round, and the breeze on it is a blessing in the hot months. The dorms are okay...Maple is the worst, Tamarack comes close and Oak is pretty bad too but bigger and more inviting...Linden is amazing but pricey and Birch was just redone and is supposed to be pricey but fantastic. The school has amazing facilities (athletic, tech, etc). Overall, I love BSU. :)

    The overall atmosphere was pretty nice, the winters are absolutely breathtaking. It is definitely a school for out doors people. The community is pretty friendly and it is a nice town. There isn't a whole lot to do other than out doors activities however.

    Bemidji State University has a lot of offer! There are various activities that anyone can partake in due to its location. BSU is on a lake and after class swimming, canoeing, and fishing are great stress relievers. A public park runs across part of the campus allowing for great leisure time, picnics, and a nature filled environment for one to kick back and study peacefully in. BSU provides on campus events such as swing dance, plays, has a great recreational center, and dorm to dorm activities. The scenery is beautiful, and anyone who loves the outdoors will find a home here at BSU.

    The campus is beautiful in summer and winter. You can even park on the lake while it's iced over. The people are great and the teachers are friendly and helpful. I have made many friends through classes and living in the dorms. The only downfall is the cold weather, but there are tunnels all along campus so we don't have to walk outside in the bitter cold.
