Working hard as beavers

President Manfred Deputy declared the beloved mascot of Bemidji State in 1932. 

As President Manfred Deputy reviewed football practice one evening in May 1932, he remarked that the players were "working hard as beavers." He called the team into a huddle and, raising his hands above their heads, declared, “I christen this team the Beavers!”

The “Beavers” nickname is symbolic of the silent, hard-working teams representing Bemidji State University.
