BSU has been named one of America’s greenest colleges and universities by The Princeton Review. Both BSU and NTC
are located in the regional center of Bemidji, the county seat of Beltrami County, in the beautiful north woods of northern
Minnesota. With a city population of 13,500 and more than 10 times as many residents within the surrounding area,
Bemidji has highly rated K-12 schools, an airport with twice-daily commercial service to Minneapolis-St. Paul, a state-ofthe-art medical center, a full array of retail options, and a year-round calendar of festivals and special events. The city of
Bemidji is on the shore of Lake Bemidji, which the Mississippi River traverses on its journey from the nearby headwaters
of Lake Itasca to the Gulf of Mexico. Renowned for its outdoor recreational opportunities, ranging from world-class
hunting and fishing to hiking, camping, and boating, the Bemidji region is a magnet for visitors and famous for its lakeside
statues of Paul Bunyan and Babe, the blue ox. Bemidji is located in the middle of three large Indian reservations, and the
history, culture, and language of the Ojibwe people are vital aspects of the region’s heritage and diversity. The region’s
natural beauty and quality of life help BSU and NTC attract and retain talented and dedicated faculty, staff, and
administrators. The CHRO works to ensure that the university and college remain attractive to prospective employees.
