BSU CELEBRATES FIRST GEN STUDENTS

Over 50 percent of students at Bemidji State University are first-generation college students, meaning they are the first in their family to attend a four-year college or university. In honor of First-Generation Celebration Day on Nov. 8, BSU will hold an ice cream social from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Lakeside Lounge in Hobson Memorial Union, sponsored by TRIO Student Support Services. Students will have the opportunity to share why they are proud to be a first-generation college student, enjoy some tasty treats and connect with other first-generation students and resources at BSU.
