WELCOME FIRST YEAR AND TRANSFER STUDENTS! We are looking forward to having you as a member of the BVU Community.  Please refer to the Welcome Week schedule on the BVU website for a complete list of activities and events happening on campus.   You may contact the Office for Student Affairs if you have any questions. 


Returning students, that did not need to be on campus early due to a commitment, will be able to check into their residence hall with their RA on Sunday, August 27 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.  Also, please make sure to go to Dows Conference Center between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, the 27th, to complete any Beavernet Checklist items before classes start on Monday, August 28.  Offices will be set up in Dows for your convenience in taking care of any unfinished business.  Thank you!  WELCOME BACK!!


Looking for a gift for your student?   Purchase “Beaver Bucks” for them to use in the Late Night Grill or the Common Grounds Coffee Shop.  Send your check to BVU Business Office, 610 West 4th Street, Storm Lake, IA  50588 and indicate who you are purchasing “Beaver Bucks” for.  Sodexo Food Service will load the value on your student’s ID.  Here’s a great buy on “Beaver Bucks”:
