  • Congratulations to Joy Harjo for being the FIRST EVER Native American to be named U.S. poet laureate! She is the 23rd person to hold this title. Harjo was the Distinguished Visiting Writer at our 2016 Northwoods Writers Conference. Such an amazing accomplishment!

    She is the third author from our writers conference participants to receive this honor. The other two include: Tracy Smith, 22nd U.S. poet laureate from the 2017 Northwoods Writers Conference and Natasha Tretheway, 19th U.S. poet laureate from the 2008 Northwoods Writers Conference.

    We are so thankful that we can welcome such talented people on our campus throughout the years!

  • Sunday, June 23, marked the 100th anniversary of the first day of classes at Bemidji Normal School! Check out this group photo of our first faculty members, and see what Art Lee's "University in the Pines" book had to say about this historic date:

    Bemidji accepted the first students to its long-awaited normal school on June 23, 1919, at 8 a.m. Said the Pioneer that evening, the school opened "under the most auspicious circumstances and the outlook is indeed flattering." By noon the first day the enrollment had reached 60, and [Bemidji Normal School President Manfred] Deputy was reported as "much encouraged" by the numbers. By the end of the third day and supposedly the last day to register, "there were 123 enrolled and more coming," said the Pioneer, which then announced that Deputy had extended the registration period to the entire week. The final total reached 130 students (only six were men) from 17 Minnesota counties.

  • Did you know... today is National American Eagle Day! The bald eagle, Haliaeetus leucocephalus, is an American national symbol.

    Celebrated annually on June 20, the observance commemorates the day in 1782, when the bird was added to the official Seal of the United States.

    The Chippewa National Forest, near the Bemidji State campus, is home to one of the largest breeding populations of bald eagles in the lower 48 states. The forest has banded and surveyed eagles since 1962. About 150 pairs of eagles produce about 150 eaglets each year!
