To put it simply, Bethel University in an incredible school, with a great community that puts Christ at the center of everything.
Review Bethel University - Minnesota
Bethel University is an incredible educational institution that values honest and high quality education and discussion in the classroom and the overall community. I have had the best experience at Bethel and have not only learned information that helps me toward my degree and future career, but has also taught me intrinsically valuable lessons about myself and society. The only criticism I have for Bethel is the lack of diversity in the student population, although Bethel does its best to encourage conversations from all different viewpoints and opinions within the context of Christian values.
Academics at Bethel University are rigorous. Professors are usually people who care about their students and their success. Be careful however, because some instructors are not always the most congenial and the grades they give can be given subjectively versus objectively. High return on investment for jobs in the area, mainly because of the reputation Bethel students hold for employers. Campus is beautiful; it recently went through a landscaping project. Being a christian private school, Bethel is not known for on campus parties. Athletics are always pushing forward and breaking records in and away from home, both housing and food have good reputation for the students (although both run on the spendy side), and student life is vibrant and always running an activity. Could do with more diversity, and more aid for student from lower socioeconomic status should be implemented.
