After Bethel University - Minnesota
- Very Good270
So far, as a freshman after first semester I have loved Bethel! I was more of a studies based student during high school, as well as more of a introvert. After coming to Bethel, I was able to leave all that behind and start a new chapter. The other new students were all super friendly and I was able to branch out and make lots of friends. I have joined some intramural sports and clubs. The classes have been interesting, you can definitely tell it is a Christian based school. The professors are very approachable and passionate about what they do.

The professors might be the worst thing about Bethel. Since we are such a small and non-natioanlly recognized school, the only profs Bethel can find are alumni who usually aren't good at their job or profs who couldn't find a job anywhere else so they settled for Bethel. The professors are usually extremely unapproachable and simply don't want to be there teaching or help you. Many students have to drop out of classes because their professors are so difficult and unhelpful. Also, their is a serious lack of variety of courses and so many useless gen ed courses that only this school requires. More than half of the courses you'll take here are unnecessary general ed requirements. One thing many students find frustrating is that Bethel often doesn't accept credits from community colleges- even local ones. For many of my classmates, they took community college courses in high school so they wouldn't have to take so many classes here. However, Bethel won't allow them to transfer over for unknown reasons. Transferring out of Bethel is also incredibly hard because of their unique classes they require you to take.

I have loved living on campus! I would say it is a must to live on campus. I have loved my floor, my RA is amazing. The reason my RA is so great is because he doesn't act like the police of campus, he acts like just another guy on the floor. I look up to my RA as a person, he is a great guy. The other people in my building have been great too! We all have common meeting grounds, and shack is a good place to meet. A lot of people say that the campus life is dead on the weekends. Although there is a definite amount of people leaving, I would say that only twenty percent of my floor leaves, and the weekends are prime time to make friends with the people that stay. I have formed the greatest bonds with these people.
