    For fun, most students either hunt or fish. Also a large portion of students go play hockey either at the outdoor rink or at the city rink for organized open hockey. There have been a few pick-up football or softball games in the field. Along with those, there are intramurals for either competitive or recreational athletes.

    Bemidji is a small town but it still has a lot to offer in ways of entertainment. The bowling ally is nice, downtown shops are popping up everywhere, you will never be lacking in coffee shop options, the art walk changes yearly and is always unique, Glazed and Amused is a great place to feed your creative side, the Rec center offers many workout classes along with tennis courts, racket ball courts, basketball, volley ball and rock climbing. And then, of course, there is the lake. BSU's outdoor program can help you take full advantage of Lake Bemidji with their sailboats, canoes, paddle boats, pontoons and many other water toys they have available to rent.

    Sports! Hockey the most. Get out on the lake all year round. The campus offers all the outdoor things. Sailing. canoing, kayaking, you name it. Go hunting! tons of other kids on campus love to hunt. you will instantly make friends. ice fishing is another big thing. you can go to movies. and bowling. since it is a smaller town there are a lot of deals for the college students with your ID.

    There are quite a few fun things to do around campus, including a bowling alley. This is also considered a hunting-friendly campus, and the lake next door provides swimming in warm weather and ice fishin and skating in the cold.
