    Bethel College - Kansas Reviews

    Bethel College is an excellent place to receive an education. Professors are extremely helpful and want to do all they can, but you also have to be in touch with yourself so that can you see what needs to be done or ask for help. Bethel can sometimes be demanding, but if you reach out and work hard, most of the resources are there. However, not everything you will need is within the college. For example, I knew that I wanted to pursue studying a foreign language, and chose German - then I studied abroad for 9 months. One of my best decisions was taking that opportunity. Doing something like that can help you appreciate your school even more! Bethel offers so much to its students, but you have to take your own initiative as well, even if it can often feel uncomfortable. We all get scared and nervous. Bethel has helped me realize that I can turn those hardships into something valuable. I know that I am never alone, no matter how I feel. I am more at ease in this supportive community.

    Bethel is a small private school in a charming town where there are lots of opportunities to grow as a person and academically. The professors here are fantastic and the courses are rigorous, yet not impossible. One thing to know is that if you want to part, there are people for that, if you don't, there are people for you too! The dorms aren't anything special and neither is the food, but Mojo's, the coffee house on campus is amazing!
    I loved the tour that was given to me on my visit. The campus is beautiful with so many trees. The cafeteria was very clean. The food choices were superior. Since I am a science major, I was excited to see a new science building. I was also impressed with the amount of research opportunities in the science department. The freshman dorms were clean. The staff members I met were very knowledgeable about Bethel and the opportunities provided there.
