Being a lover of the outdoors, bemidji has been a wonderful experience because there are so many opportunities to be outside and connect with others who are into the same things as you. There are plenty of things that fit your forte here and the environment is so welcoming and everyone is wanted here. I would choose this school agaon because of my experiences and the way i can easily call it my second home

The school is great if you are looking for somewhere that ties in with the outdoors. Small, scenic campus that makes for short and enjoyable travel times between classes, and lake views from almost every classroom window. Small class sizes, professors are hit or miss. Some professors are absolutely great and attentive to student needs, others don't teach subject matter effectively at all. Activities are mostly outdoor-centered or small indoor things like lunchtime karaoke or late night bingo.
