Bethel has completely changed my attitude toward others, sports, academics, and my walk with Christ. The atomosphere here is so encouraging and positive and supportive. The academics so far have been outstanding! Bethel has given me some of my very close and forever friends.

Bethel is a great place for people looking to build their faith with other people their age that find faith and academics important. The campus has so many competent professors that are willing to help you when you're struggling. The one problem that I sometimes have with Bethel is that while everyone is super friendly and there's tons of activities to go to, the authenticity of friendships can be lost. It can be hard to get close to people beyond the activities. But overall love it!
Attending Bethel University as a Post-Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) student has been one of the experiences, and has made me fall completely and utterly in love with the school. All of my professors thus far have been very good at teaching and helping students, and my classes have been very enjoyable yet challenging. All of the students I have met have been nothing but kind and welcoming. As a Christian, the incorporation of faith into all of my courses has been a major plus for my college experience. One of the main things I wish to see a change in is more diversity on campus, for I am from a very diverse high school and that has always been a major part of my education. Overall, my education at Bethel has been nothing short of amazing, and I would recommend this school to any high school student looking for a good education with the friendliest classmates in a Christian environment.
