Recapping Bemidji State’s social media fun on Groundhog Day

We used Storify to recap the social media fun Bemidji State had this past Monday for Groundhog Day. We shared one Facebook post and three tweets meant to reinforce our connection to the beaver as our mascot, and to winter as a key part of our culture and identity, by poking some fun at the fact that the groundhog called for an early spring. We pulled about 18,400 reach and 1.7 percent engagement for this, which was a pretty solid day of work.

Never send a groundhog to do a Beaver’s job. #WeWantMoreWinter


Helen, Millie and I were on Lakeland Public TV

Earlier this month, Helen, Milllie and I got caught by Lakeland Public Television when we hit the sledding hill by Library Park here in Bemidji. Helen and I were interviewed on camera for the story, and there are b-roll shots of Millie lugging her sled around. This was fun.
