Bemidji State University Centennial

A Centennial Task Force of faculty, staff, students, and alumni has been planning and preparing for programs and activities that honor and illuminate the remarkable history and legacy of the University in the Pines.

Much work is ahead to gather and tell this rich story through the people who have lived it, then and now.


We strongly encourage you to share your own memories and those of your family members. We would love to receive photographs, video, text and memorabilia that bring the university's past to life. Please provide personal anecdotes and materials that relate to your own experience at Bemidji State or that will otherwise help tell the story of BSU's history to:

BSU Centennial
Bemidji State University
1500 Birchmont Dr. NE, #17
Bemidji, MN 56601-2699

You can also send email to or call Brett Bahr, Director of Alumni Relations, at 218-755-2599.

We promise to take extreme care to preserve and return all submissions as requested.
