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.

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.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity, mostly in economic background but there is also noticeable ethnic and political diversity as well.
