Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • Alissa from Lismore, MN
  • I am a current student here

    I most definitely enjoy being here. When I first visited campus, I could not believe how friendly everyone was. To my surprise, the people at Bethany are always like that. Also, I enjoy all of my classes, the campus activities, the aports events, playing in the pep band. There are not many aspects about Bethany that I do not like.

  • I am a current student here

    I love it!! Everyone is really nice. I'm sure that when/if my wheelchair gets stuck around campus this winter, I'm not going to be short of helpers. No one seems mean/unhelpful at all. I'm accepted for who I am. And of course, the professors are great. I've only had Moeller and Meyer, but I really like their teaching styles and such. I've learned a lot, and they do a good job with teaching.

    All of the staff really care about you as an individual, you are not just a number at this college. There is always something to do after classes are over - sports, music, theater, etc.

    Many people I know have attended Bethany and everyone tells me that they had a lot of fun. It's a small campus which allows students to make many strong friendships.
