Niche User: I recently transferred to a different school to pursue a different major, but my two years here were amazing. I know it's cliché, but Bemidji really did feel like a 2nd home to me. It's a small town in the middle of Northern Minnesota, but that seclusion creates a lot of culture and hospitality. Though I will admit, my first two months as a freshman were a bit rough. You will find there's a lot of kids there who don't take college too seriously, but if you keep an open mind you will meet great new friends.
Biking, Fishing, Canoeing, and so on are available for you, Bemidji is a typical tourist spot for Minnesotans. There are so many beautiful paths and trails and the town is a joy to walk though.
It's not your typical college experience and may take time to adjust, but looking back I wouldn't have gone anywhere else. The winter is probably the biggest complaint I hear, but it gave me 5 months to ski, icefish, and play hockey.
To sum it up: It's affordable and fun!

Graduate Student: This year, I will be starting the Educational Leadership Graduate program at Southwest Minnesota State University. Since the program does not officially start until September 8th, I can only give my first impressions. Upon hearing about the program from my administrator, I was very intrigued. I was not interested in doing an online program and this appeared to be a fabulous fit. It is a cohort that meets closer to my home, we will be meeting on a monthly basis and a few of my coworkers have joined the program. Two professors from the university came to the location and met with potential students, where they outlined the program, offered incentives for early admissions and took the time to hear and answer questions. The only thing that I wish were different was the timeliness of communication about the first class. All in all, I am very anxious to start this journey and look forward to what Southwest has to offer me as I work towards my Master's.
