Bemidji State University, a public school located in northern Minnesota, has brought student living to the city of Bemidji since 1919, and is now a member of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU). Originally called the Bemidji State Normal School, the institution has expanded its curriculum to include a wide variety of popular majors and pre-professional programs, enabling students to explore their interests and passions.
The university is located on the shore of Lake Bemidji, where student housing is available both on campus and in the surrounding area. The city is home to about 13,400 residents and a vibrant arts scene, visible in the the small artisan shops and forms of public art that line its streets. Off campus housing places students amidst this creatively productive waterfront area, at the north end of Bemidji's downtown district. In addition to the arts scene, residents can find theaters, cafes and an active sporting scene in the city.
"As northern Minnesota's university, we engage in new worlds of thought, embrace responsible citizenship and educate for a future that can only be imagined," says the Bemidji State University mission statement. Offering more than 65 majors and pre-professional programs, the university confers degrees through its College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business, Technology and Communication, College of Health Sciences and Human Ecology and School of Graduate Studies, in addition to its online education and integrative programs. Student living is made unique by Bemidji State's notable programs and conferences in writing, including the only BFA program in the MnSCU system, and courses in electronic writing, blogs, wikis, web content writing, digital rhetoric and web design. Currently, almost 5,000 undergraduates and more than 400 postgraduates enroll at BSU, and spread themselves among student housing in the area.
In particular, off campus housing near BSU places students near the waterfront Cameron Park, as well as Chet Anderson Stadium.
