Bethel University - Minnesota Reviews
I love Bethel! It has been such a life changing place for me! Who I am as a person has been positively impacted much more than just the academic side. I am a student athlete here and it is amazing to see the community of this school! Among all the female athletes there’s a Sunday night bible study where we are able to connect with all different kinds of sports and cheer one another on! The professors are incredible and have invested so much into me and my future as an educator! I’m so thankful that I chose to come to this school!
I love Bethel! The community is great, the people you meet will be some of your closest friends, and the faculty is so welcoming and helpful. The professors are very personable. I have had a couple that invite our class over to their house for Christmas parties or an end of the year BBQ.
I went to Bethel for their RN-ADN to BSN program. I had 2 previous associates degrees from MNSCU colleges. Bethel was by far the best experience. The teachers care about their students and are flexible. I was very sick at the time an assignment was due and they extended the date without a problem. That never would have happened at my other colleges. Also, their main concern is student comprehension instead of temporarily remembering information for a test. The program wasn’t easy by any means but the instructors made it enjoyable by engaging students and really making us interested in the coursework.
