What I like about Bethel University is that my advisors, staff, and students are so encouraging about what I want to pursue as a career and social activities. Some professors are harsh but it's because they want you to succeed in life and push you to your limits. The interactions I have with Bethel students are amazing because they are so friendly and welcoming. There are so many activities to do from watching sports play, vespers, worshiping, Sunday dinners, and so many more.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Bethel University has a majority of White students but there is some diversity with Blacks, Mexicans, and Asians. There's not a lot of diversity but it shouldn't stop you from coming here because everyone is so welcoming and friendly.

Bethel University is a small private university in Arden Hills Minnesota. It is a Christian University where we strive to follow God's plan for our lives. Our small campus has many benefits such as small class sizes, close relationships with professors, and a sweet close-knit community. The people you come across at Bethel University are some of the friendliest and kindest people you will come across. You will likely be able to count on one hand the number of times you will hold your own door open if you visit our campus. The people at Bethel know how to show Christ-like love to each other, and it truly is what sets Bethel apart. Living on campus is quite inexpensive compared to other universities, and the community you will find in your residence hall is top-notch. Bethel students are expected to abide by the "Covenant for Life Together" which is a document that outlines the way in which we believe we should act. This document is signed by all students upon application to the university. It outlaws behaviors such as alcohol consumption, premarital sex, swearing, and academic dishonesty to name a few. For some this seems like childish rules, for others, it holds provides accountability for our campus to live a life that honors Christ. With a small campus comes its downsides. If you're looking to be able to go about your day without running into somebody you know, this may not be the place for you due to the smaller number of students who attend Bethel. The dining hall will not have as many options as a larger school, but the options offered are pretty solid. Varsity sports are not going to be as attended as they are at a larger university. Many people who attend this university are from Minnesota, so there are a good number of people who go home on the weekends. Being that Bethel is a Christian university, you will have required general education classes that surround religion. This can be frustrating because these courses can be challenging, and your counterparts at public universities will not have to take them. Overall, I love Bethel. The campus is gorgeous, and the academics (especially in Nursing) are exceptional and highly regarded in the eyes of employers. Although tuition may be high, and one may get tired of ring-by-spring jokes, I recommend Bethel to anybody wanting to attend school near the Twin Cities and live in a Christ-centered community.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

*HIGH tuition - BUT financial aid is generous, so don't be turned off by the "ticket price" *Required Christian Gen Eds - these courses may prolong graduation in comparison to a public university. *Small campus - not as many people to meet, cliquey. *Dining Hall - not a ton of options, fine quality.
