Bethany College - Kansas Reviews
I'm originally from a urban area so I found the town of Lindsborg to be lacking. The college is great for people who love small towns and a simple life, but every day felt a bit repetitive to me. Also, everything is very expensive for what it's worth. Many of the dorms are in a constant state of disrepair, and the school itself seems to be on a track of financial problems. What they do with the ridiculous payments, they spend on the mediocre sports teams. For most of the year the campus is dead, and people don't really have too much school spirit, which made it very lonely. Professors were always available for meetings and they seemed to care about you, though. I'd say come to the school if you're from a small Kansas town. If not, you could do better someplace else.
The small college atmosphere creates an environment in which students and faculty can form lasting relationships that enhance learning abilities. The college, overall, however, is unstable in terms of managerial staff and organizational structure.
Bethany College is a great way to have great friends and a great education. The teachers are supportive and the college experienced as best as it can be at a small school.
I love Bethany Collge because the professors care about your future. The area is great the people of Lindsborg are so nice and welcoming. There are a lot of campus event to attend for free. They offer a variety of classes. The class size is roughly 40 students which is great because you can learn and ask questions easier. They also provide free academic assistance if needed. They have tutors and a writing center for papers. The atmosphere on campus is awesome everyone will smile or wave at you as you walk by. I recommend anyone who wants to go to a small college to attend Bethany
Bethany is a wonderful place! The campus is very clean and everyone is very kind. The cafeteria food is awesome as well. The professors are very welcoming and nice as well.
I wish I could write an essay on all the reasons you SHOULD NOT come to Bethany. Every year around July they send out balance statements an every year I owe $500-$3000 EXTRA. If you playing a sport and are getting recruited talk to student not coaches to find out how the school really is. The teachers are good (in the science department).Campus is pretty boring, not much to do. The only good thing is the people. But, your degree will not be taken seriously.
Bethany is a very home environment along with the college feel. You don't feel like you are in a small town when you are on campus. My first year at Bethany was great and wouldn't of traded it for anything. All the coaches, staff, faculty, and volunteers are all so friendly now matter what culture you are from.
I'm finding it very nice so far, teachers are very willing to help if asked and the class sizes aren't overwhelming.
So far Bethany has been a great experience for me. It may not be the biggest school or be in the biggest town, but it's about the people around you that make the experience worth it. I think the school could really work on some things like the cafeteria food and reconstructing some of the dorms.
Bethany has been an amazing school for me to meet new people that are generally kind hearted and care while also getting the education that I desire. It is setting me up for success in the future and I look forward to class and events held on campus.
This school only runs because of athletics. Some sports practice until midnight or later and before 6am every day. Staff are run thin and burnt out. Lindsborg is an excellent town with great people and traditions.
I like the small classes and the relationship students build with the professors and each other. I don’t like the cost. If the college was more affordable, I believe more students would consider it. Bethel is a diamond hidden in tons of rocks.
I like how small Bethany is and how everyone is so friendly and welcoming. I would definitely change the financial aid program and how slow it is to have a completed financial aid statement.
It's a small community so it's easy to live in. However most of the students only attend Bethany to play sports so they could have different program to attract students.
Overall I did not enjoy my time at Bethany. I'm from a fairly big city and the small town of Lindsborg quickly became a boring place for me. Also, the dorm room I was put in gave me no control of my room temperature, so some days it would be freezing cold and other days it reached up to 85 degrees. And on top of that the WiFi was constantly slow and shutting on and off. The food had its moments where it was decent, but I did get food poisoning one time, I'm not too sure what it is I had eaten. The academic were fine, although some classes I felt were a waste of time (Quest classes). However, the professors I had were very kind people who you can go to for help or just to hang out with.
I really enjoyed the smaller class sizes and the attention you receive from the professors. I would like to see more diversity.
Overall my experience at Bethany College has been very exciting. I have met many new people and have developed strong friendships. Playing football has been the best part about Bethany College because of the many memories that were created in the four months. The courses that Bethany requires like Quest and Interdisciplinary are the only complaints I have about Bethany College. These courses seem to be pointless and are only time consuming to the courses that are most important for my major. Other than those two classes my experience has been amazing.
