3 College Freshman

Diversity: The thing to know about Bethany is that it's a very conservative Lutheran college. While most students are Lutheran, the rest of the students are mainly other Christian denominations. It would be very hard to be a non-Christian at Bethany.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Bethany is a dry campus, so it's not very visible, but there are people who sneak it in.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Aside from the people who drink and do drugs, everyone on campus is kind and respectful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: RAs were great in Gully! However, my hall always smelled like marijuana, thanks to some basketball guys living there, and nothing was done about it ever.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I participated in two varsity level sports as a freshman. It was fun to be able to do that, since it's such a small school. However, most of the people involved in sports at Bethany are not very kind or moral people.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's truly a great school. They have some good morals, but not everyone in the school has those. I've been reading the reviews on here about nobody doing drugs - that's a lie. Not only do we have drug users on campus, but a member of the class of 2018 sells drugs to people in the underclassmen dorms.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: The school itself has no "party scene," that's nearby MSU. There are a few bars in Mankato.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Again, it's not a party school. People have gatherings, but MSU has the actual parties.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Academics are good. Curriculums are good, professors are helpful and very knowledgeable about their field.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: There's quite a bit of diversity in economic background, and some racial/ethnic diversity. Practically everyone here is Christian and conservative, so no diversity there.

The school has a Title IX exemption for religious reasons, so if you're LGBT, don't come here. If the school finds out you're LGBT, they force you to go through "religious counseling." If you refuse, I think they could kick you out of the school.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: No one here does drugs, and very, very few people drink.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We leave our backpacks in this hallway by the Caf, and no one's stuff has been taken.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class sizes are small, largest class I've had had 30 people. Professors are very knowledgeable.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't done an internship through here, but the programs for it are very good.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Never lived in the dorms yet, but I've seen them and they look fairly nice. People that I've talked to say they're great.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Most sporting events aren't regularly attended, and basketball is the only one people ever watch. The teams don't have great records. The facilities are fine, and there's plenty of intermurals.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would choose this school if you're very interested in a program they have.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe when walking around campus even late at night or early in the morning. The security are very nice and are always a presence that is noticed, which helps in feeling safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are very approachable and are knowledgeable in there subjects. Always willing to help students outside of class. Class sizes are small so you get into good discussions.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall I have had a great experience living in the dorms, the people here are great, the RA's are fantastic, and in my opinion it is the only way to go to college freshman year. Very clean and the AC is very nice in the fall when it is warm.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Many opportunities to get involved in NCAA Division III athletic teams who have great coaches. There are a large number of IM sports that are offered and a lot of fun to compete in. They are competitive, yet still fun to play with friends.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall I have had a great experience at Bethany Lutheran College. The teachers are very helpful and accessible. The atmosphere at BLC is unlike any other where you get to know almost everyone, and everyone is friendly. There is opportunity to become involved in a wide variety of groups or clubs and I have kept very busy.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Bethany is a very uneventful campus, which makes me feel safe when walking alone at night. You can call security if you want an escort to your car at night, which is great.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: A lot of the classes seem pointless for life after college. Most of the professors know students by name, though, so that's great. Some professors spend so much time preparing class work, while it is obvious that others do not prepare material.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: Advisors do not work with students to get them potential jobs after graduation and there are rarely employers recruiting on campus. The requirement of an internship for many majors is great, because knowledge learned and experience gained from internships is more valuable than classes.
