2 College Junior

Facilities: Bethany is quite literally in the middle of nowhere. The town of Bethany has only 400 people in it and one store and bar. If you want to go shopping or out to eat you will have to drive about 30 minutes away to the Highlands (a shopping center with a Walmart, Cabellas, and a few other stores and restaurants). This lack of civilization and activities means that the night life pretty much consists of alcohol-filled parties and little else.

2 College Junior

Facilities: The college claims that they are keeping the facilities in their original conditions to preserve the history of the school, but that means that all of the classrooms and many of the dorms lack any form of climate control such as air conditioning. Expect it to be cold in the winter and blistering in the spring/summer. As a biology major we usually find ourselves short on the necessary technology, though the microscopes that we have are of good quality. The chemistry department is currently receiving several upgrades seeing as the fire marshal came through and discovered that only 30% of our emergency shower heads (used for fire and chemical burns) were up to par. All in all there is major room for improvement.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Could definitely be a lot. The only thing that we have to go to socialize is the single bar in town.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: One of the things I've never struggled with here is fitting in. Mostly because I'm on the baseball team here so I'm commonly with them.

1 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities are kept in a "traditional" style meaning that many of the building lack air conditioning making hot days unbearable. Many classrooms are lacking the appropriate amount of desks and seats and class technology (microscopes, projectors, TVs, etc.). The library has only nine computers for student use meaning that it is a constant struggle to access and print assignments without a personal computer. Dorms tend to have broken or missing lights and furniture making comfortable living a luxury. There is definitely a large amount of room for improvement.
