Bethel University - Indiana Reviews

For the bad reviews.. All were about the "sexuality" policies, the weather, or the nightlife.. Let's use common sense here. This is a PRIVATE CHRISTIAN COLLEGE in Indiana. You agree to live a Christian lifestyle before attending classes, and really?.. Indiana is cold.. and Christian schools are not for partying/homosexuality.

As a student, Bethel has been great! Everyone I have dealt with, from professors to administration, have been great. The work is manageable, and I have yet to feel overwhelmed, outside of waiting last second for a few assignments. For us less-strict Christians, Bethel only requires 2-3 Christian courses, and they can often transfer as literature courses (the Bible is a book), but are still reasonable.

Bethel has one of the best transfer policies in the country, and will take most classes/experience out there. It's not the cheapest school around, but is still a non-profit evangelical school, and does missions, etc., still competitive to most private schools.

Bethel College is a very good school, a bit pricey but I would say you get what you pay for. They can be very hands on with their students, and truly make you feel like they care about your success. I am in the nursing program and although it is very tough, they try to work with you the best they can! I give it four stars because of the price, it seems to be very hard to afford especially with buying new text books and school supplies all of the time.
