Starfish is a student success system that allows BHSU to connect students with the tools and resources that they might need in order to be successful. The system allows students to easily schedule appointments with their professors and advisors, and allows them to better help students to be successful. Starfish also allows the University to remind students about non-classroom related tasks that they need to complete and commend students for a job well done. Learn more about Starfish.
