Bethany Lutheran College Reviews
Bethany Lutheran College has been a new experience with it's highs and lows. I went here to play soccer and I got to play it at a college level. I got to figure out what I wanted to do with my life with all the new people I met and that have changed my life for the better. I joined the fine arts portion of the college and just fell for it. It's a school with so many beautiful and amazing things about it that you can't just talk about one thing. It's has strengths and weakness as we all do, but at the end of the day it becomes a home for all people no matter where you come from.
Bethany Lutheran College is a great school for those who are Christians and are seeking a religion-based education. They offer a high quality education, and the community is very close as it is a small school. This school would not be ideal for someone who is not as focused on their studies.
I would say Bethany is a fairly good school. You get what is expected from a small school, teachers are willing to help because of the small class sizes. If you have food allergies I do not recommend because the selection is limited and very repetitive.
