2 College Freshman

Diversity: There aren't many diverse students. Bethel is predominantly white, middle-class, and christian.

Drug Safety: I'm not around drinking, but may students partake in drinking. Most kids go off campus to drink and do drugs.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. The security is remarkable, and I always see security guards at night. Some have helped me in situations before.

Overall Experience: There was only one professor that I did not resonate with, but the rest were very caring and interested in my learning experiences. They all seemed to want to be there, and they were passionate about their subjects.

Campus Housing: It's ok to live on campus. I have made a decent amount of friends. Rules are not always followed, and quiet hours are not always enforced, but other than that, it is acceptable. It is always clean, and it is close to my classes.

Athletics: I am not an athlete, so I don't know much about my school's athletics. It is a division three school, so athletics aren't the most important aspect of Bethel.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The academics at Bethel are very good, but there are some situations that are lacking. There are many events at the beginning of the year, but the events are not as good as the year progresses. Many of the professors are adequate and truly care about the students. The dorms are very nice, but the overall tuition is very expensive.

Health & Safety: I do feel very safe walking around campus. I see campus security driving around quite frequently, making their loops, looking for anything out of the ordinary. I am surprised how easy it is for someone to walk/drive onto campus during the day and even some hours of the night. It helps that there are usually other people walking from place to place in the late evening, but it is slightly disconcerning that it is not that hard for someone to arrive on campus without being questioned by security.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Lots of the general education requirements seem to be too strenuous of work for what they are worth. I would rather spend my time and energy learning and being pushed in areas that will apply to my future more directly than many general classes do. Professors are extremely knowledgeable and from my experience are always willing to meet one on one to further explain material or chat about life. There is a wide variety of classes to take and that is something I had more time and money to experiment with.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Degrees from this school are highly valued. Along with our educational degree we receive, I also feel like students are far better equipped to handle real life encounters. The career and development calling services at the school aid several students and have open ears to really hear student out. There is also a lot of career recruiting on campus, a way for students to be proactive about their careers after college.

Campus Housing: The worst options for on campus living are wonderful compared to several other colleges and universities. The social atmosphere is inviting anywhere, which makes up for the small spaces of some living options. Choosing housing is somewhat stressful as certain dorm rooms tend to fill up more quickly than others. After that process and people are settled in their housing, everyone is happy with their dorms.

Athletics: Athletics are respected and well attended. A lot of our school spirit comes from sporting events. It's neat to see how much attention intramurals receive also. It's a way for people of all athletic backgrounds to participate in athletic activity together. Our brand new fitness center is a big hit on campus, too, for all students.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school has a community like none other. I had never felt more welcomed into a new community than before setting foot on campus. Students and professors truly care about each other; that is something I could not have found anywhere else should I have decided to choose a differently.

Overall Experience: For someone like myself who doesn't enjoy going to school Bethel has made it a good experience. I think the best thing about it is the location. Its in a big city and you can get to it within minutes but it still has the small school and town feeling to it. You don't feel the hustle and bustle of the city while on campus you feel the calm school setting.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: You could walk around alone in the middle of the night and feel completely safe, and if you're feeling paranoid you can get security to pick you up

Greek Life: There is no Greek Life

Athletics: Our team is pretty good and there are a variety of sports events to attend each week. We are a D3 school, so the school isn't super revolved around sports and the games don't always have huge turnouts. There are also a variety of sports to try out for and we just got a new wellness center and locker rooms for training.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Bethel. It has great food, programs/classes, and faith integration. It's expensive, but it's worth the money. The dorms are all pretty nice and so is the campus. This is not the school for you if you party. The only drawback is the amount of fake people, but there are still some great people here too.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have not heard a great deal about sexual assaults on campus

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The instructors are knowledgeable and incorporate Christian values and principles into their courses. I like the fact that students only take one class at a time although the coarse work can get a bit intense at times. Getting to know your classmates is easy because you have the same students in each of your courses.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I attend classes at an off campus location one night a week. Therefore I am not sure about the athletics program at the main campus.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety and security are very decent on campus. Often, students will leave their belongings in the library while they run to buy a snack or drink to consume while they study. Assault is a rarity, and when it has happened it is most often when someone invites someone into a private room, which should always be cautioned against.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most courses are taught by wonderful professors tat are knowledgeable and helpful. The problem is when the professors do not want to be completely invested in their job as a professor to ensure that students grasp materials to the fullest. Class sizes are small, and though sometimes nice, it is a detriment when class registration fills up due to small class limitations. Additionally, the TA's are rarely seen...and almost never employed to assist students.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Because the academics are rigorous here, the value of a degree from this school is fairly high. Many employees see the label of Bethel University and are impressed or more inclined to invest time in an interview because of that. Bethel also offers resume workshops, and multiple career fairs during the year to students of all majors and interests. As for internships, it is often required for students in their junior or senior year to gain experience from an internship related to their field. Often, these are provided for and are joint efforts of student and program advisers on behalf of the student.
