3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Bethel feels like a youth group retreat with class

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Bethel is just like high school. Very clicky and judgmental. The campus reminds me of a summer camp and the faculty is very strict.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Bethel is a school that you get what you put in. This school definitely is not perfect. It is more expensive and they do offer scholarships to the majority of their students. The only downside is that the price is very high for what you receive. If you pick one of Bethel's accredited majors you will definitely get your money's worth. Bethel needs to pursue all of it's majors like the accredited ones. The housing is ok. Some of the freshman dorms desperately need updates and they are focusing on building a new wellness center. Once you become a sophomore you have the option between a really nice newer dorm or an old dorm (the rumor is that this housing was meant to be temporary offices) that happens to be really close to the buildings. The faith at Bethel is again what you put in. They do a really good job of brining in speakers and the chapels are not mandatory. Overall, Bethel is a place where the school will not hand you friends and fun and a great education, you need to pursue that.

2 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I met some people who are my best friends 5 years later so I would be afraid to change that if I had the chance to do it over again. However, the school had little to do with that. It was just chance that I should meet those people. It's far too expensive for what they offer and the community as a whole is not one that I would want to identify with. Academic standards seem to be fairly low, the arts and humanities are underfunded, and the new buildings are ostentatious and unnecessary. They need to fix their spending problems.

2 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: In 10 years student tuition has gone up by nearly 60%. The loans I have are crippling and it was not worth it.

Administration: Administration claims to desire a sense of community amongst students, but their policies perpetuate a sense of us vs them mentality. The "good" bethel students vs the "bad" ones.

Campus Housing: Dorms are convenient and functional. Nothing special.

Administration: I feel that there is not a huge problem with parties and alcohol. I believe the resident assistants and directors do a great job keeping the students doing the right thing.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I play Women's Basketball and it is great. I love the athletic facilities that are available to us. Not only people who play a varsity sport, but anyone who wants is allowed to use the gym or other work out equipment places when they are not being used.

Off-Campus Dining: We have s shuttle that brings us to the mall and that has a lot of food choices. The shuttle also takes us to target so you can get your own food of choice as well. There are plenty of options around Bethel's campus.
