Alumni Phonathon

In the basement of the David Park House, Bemidji State University students gather Monday through Thursday evenings in a small room. They are the BSU Phonathon staff, and if you are a BSU alumnus you have likely heard from them. Their job is to update contact information, let you know what is happening on campus, and talk to you about the Annual Campaign.

We hope you will take a few minutes to visit with them. Ask about campus life and let them know what it was like when you were on campus. Just like you, they have stories to tell ... .

EVERY gift from our alumni makes a difference!
