We’ve got big news: Homecoming returns to Bemidji State University on Sept. 27-29, 2024! We’re calling all alumni, students, friends and Beavers to campus for this fall’s big bash.

Between athletic events, the 41st annual Carl O. Thompson Memorial Concert, the Honors Gala and a downtown dance, we have plenty in store this year – plus much more still in development. Over the coming months, you’ll learn about the themes, community events and other ideas that we have up our sleeves. But for now, make sure you book your calendars with Bemidji State for the last weekend in September.

Last year was a massive success, yet it was missing one thing. So one thing’s for certain this time around: We’re getting back in that lake this fall.

BSU has a claim to the greatest Homecoming tradition in the country, as the football team celebrates a Homecoming victory by jumping into Lake Bemidji. The place to be after the game is the shoreline just off of Chet Anderson Stadium, so make sure you claim your spot when the Beavers return this year.

Speaking of which, you won’t want to miss anything that’s coming your way, so keep your ears tuned and your eyes peeled. We can’t wait to welcome you back to campus – all in the name of Beaver pride!
