4 College Sophomore

Parking: I have had a car at school since my freshman year. You are required to register your vehicle with the school but there are no permit costs. Availability of parking spaces has never been a problem.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There is quite a bit of diversity among guys and girls on campus. I myself have friends on both sides of the spectrum, in both sexes. Girls that are gorgeous, athletic, and smart, and then there are those who are extremely geeky, same with the guys. But all in all it's a fun crowd and I find the people around here are for the most part very caring and interesting.

Weather: It's Kansas so weather can go from 100 degrees with 100% humidity and blazing sun, to low 80's with massive thunderstorms in a split second. Students are used to the extreme weather changes and the campus is well equipped to deal with the temperamental Kansas weather.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: While there are places to go in Newton, the attraction wears off fairly fast. There are a few locations where students are regular patrons, and we do have good shopping access. But the cultural, sports/recreation, and positive attitudes towards students aspects are severely lacking.

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is practically no nightlife at Bethel. A few places in Newton. If you want nightlife, have to go to Wichita.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Applied for a lot of outside scholarships, unable to receive any.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: If you are not into the party scene, you are very often left out. This would be the time to instate that close friends in small groups who share your values is the best and by all means encouraged. I say a B because people are independent, but you are not very accepted if your values stray from that scene, so you need to be confident in yourself. The SAC plans fun.. non "partying" activities alot of times that students do get invovled in, and when they do, it's a great time!

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I say a B+ because we have a great SAC, but people are pretty flaky in attendance and commitment. Our small campus has a lot to offer and a lot of interests and creativity, but Alot of people are more concerned about partying, so for those who don't settle into that scene feel really left out. However, there are advantages to having that great SAC, who try their hardest to plan fun creative activities. Way to go! I can't wait to live on campus to participate in those more.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: This is Kansas. The weather, like many other places, has a mind of it's own. But campus is small enough that 11 inches of snow didn't stop us from having classes. So, it doesn't really change plans a whole lot. when it does, it's a BIG deal.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The Campus is gorgeous, and there are plenty of new remodeled buildings to be proud of. The older buildings, while historic with amazing histories, could use some new touching up and remodeling for appeal. But the campus is GREAT!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Campus strictness has definitely improved, but it still needs a lot of work. It use to be that certain violations were instantly fined without any chance for the student to defend themselves. Now instead of instant fines the student meets with the VP for Student Life and punishment is assigned that fits the crime. At the same time the new policy, for lack of a better word, about RA walks has made many students feel like Student Life is intruding on their privacy and they feel like they are not being treated like responsible adults.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Bethel's focus on service opportunities has provided me with numerous chances to expand my horizons and make connections vital to my future. Every year there is a service day where the whole campus spends the day doing service projects for the school and community, and there are plans to increase service projects in the community. Also the emphasis on Christian faith is very important to me because it illustrates how important things like honesty, service, caring, and integrity are to the institution.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Bethel College has made some significant steps toward improving student life on campus. In the past few years there has been in increase in club participation, Resident Life funding, and just overall appearance of the college. SAC has sponsored many events and is constantly striving to give students many diverse options for activities. Bethel has also recently remodeled the Academic Center and is working towards more upgrades to campus facilities.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I commuted from a city 30 minutes down South because it was cost efficient.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Finding a parking spot at Bethel College is easy. There is always an open spot all throughout the day.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: I was here only for the Spring, but everyday was sunny and I had no problem walking to class.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I dont eat here, but my buddies all say it's pretty bad.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is nothing in Newton, Kansas.

College Freshman

Nightlife: The only thing at Bethel are "creekers", literal parties at the creek.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am a little annoyed that I can earn two 6, 000 dollar scholarships, but only be offered 6,000 I kind of get it, but when I have two Major/ minors I am needing all the help I can get! But I appreciate how willing and trusting the faculty is to give these scholarships to students. I don't mean to sound rude- Every bit really does count, but the limits kind of stink in a situation like mine.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I am very comfortable walking around alone at night. I stay under lights, but I'm not worried about the community or students as a whole at all. Sometimes I wish that the housing was updated a little bit, but the campus does as WONDERFUL job preserving an older campuses' beautiul buildings, and cleanliness. It is a gorgeous and safe campus to walk around, study and and is a general asset to the community. I don't understand there to be theft, crimes, (other than the occasional drinking issues). The only REAL problem I see is a lack of secure, well... security. Sure there's lock up at night, but I don't know if we should make sure we are definitely secure.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys are guys and the girls are girls. It's a school in south central Kansas. Everyone is above average.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The requirements for music majors keep students very busy throughout their time at Bethel. Classes are engaging and close knit, which allow relationships for with professors and students to form. You can tell the professors really care about the music program.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Students are held to very high academic standards. Bethel prepares students for the real world through its varying general education requirements and common core curriculum.

Campus Dining: Our Caf was remolded this year and it looks awesome! It is a clean and happy eating environment. There are usually 4 different main meal options and always a soup, salad, and sandwich bar. The caf always has multiple vegetarian/vegan options as well. I can sometimes be a picky eater but always find something to eat that I enjoy. The food service asks for feedback about the food and makes changes or adds requests to the menu. In addition, the workers are always smiling and enjoy their job.
