Orientation is an opportunity for our new students to get adjusted to life at Bethel before classes begin. It begins on a Saturday with new student move-in during the day, followed by a picnic around Bethel’s Reflection Pond. You’ll then be divided into First Year Experience (FYE) groups and given the opportunity to get to know some of your new classmates. Parents also have the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the campus that evening.

Throughout orientation, you’ll participate in a variety of activities including a trip to Chicago, community service, and an FYE Variety Show. A number of other meetings and activities will also take place designed to help answer all your questions. Orientation concludes Wednesday night with a Back to School Party for both new and returning students. More information will be sent to you in July.

Thank you!
