Campaign goes public

In the October issue of BSU Insider, BSU President Dr. Richard A. Hanson announced that Imagine Tomorrow, the university's first-ever comprehensive campaign, has raised $25.4 million toward its $35 million goal.

Later this month, a special issue of Bemidji State University Magazine will provide an in-depth look at the Imagine Tomorrow campaign. The magazine features profiles on some of the individuals who gained so much more than a degree during their time at BSU and are now giving back, financially and through volunteer leadership, and students who have benefitted from the invaluable gifts that were made possible by the scholarships they received.

In an exclusive early look, the upcoming issue of Bemidji State University Magazine is being shared with faculty and staff before it reaches our alumni and friends across the country. Please enjoy this in-depth exploration of the people who are making it possible for our students to Imagine Tomorrow.
