and character of a college town, Bemidji remains a tight-knit
community of good neighbors and engaged citizens. While the city of
Bemidji — named after the Ojibwe Chief Shaynowishkung (nicknamed
Bemidji) — is home to a diverse population of more than 15,000
people, it serves a regional population of more than 100,000.
Located between three American Indian reservations – Leech Lake,
Red Lake, and White Earth, students have an opportunity to
experience a dynamic local culture and history. Bemidji also sits
at the center of the legends of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox.
The famous statues of Paul and Babe greet students as they drive

Though quaint and historic, the city offers the urban
conveniences upon which college students rely. Northwest Technical
College is conveniently located minutes away from affordable
restaurants, cozy coffee shops, grocery stores, city parks, and
more. Small, locally-owned shops and art sculptures line the
streets of downtown Bemidji, while national chains can be found in
and around the Bemidji area, including an uptown selection of
department stores and restaurants.
The thriving downtown community presents ample opportunities for
engagement off-campus. Among other things, there are fine-dining
restaurants, cafes, and a natural foods co-op in downtown Bemidji.
The historic Paul Bunyan Playhouse has a calendar of classic shows;
restaurants and lounges offer weekly live music performances; the
First Friday Art Walk provides a tour of new monthly art exhibits;
and annual events such as the Loop the Lake Festival, the Dragon
Boat Festival, the Blue Ox Marathon, Bemidji Winterfest, and The
Minnesota Finlandia bring the community together.

trail systems within minutes of campus and community parks with
walking trails, playgrounds and a skate park. Lake Bemidji State
Park and its miles of navigable trails is located directly across
the lake from BSU, and the Buena Vista Ski Area — just 12 miles

transportation in the winter months. Further, the Mississippi River
Headwaters is a mere 45 minutes from Bemidji.
