Campus Life: International Students

“…rooted and built up in Him, strengthened, in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”
Colossians 2:7

Bethel College has hosted an average of 30-40 international students over the years. Students have come from all over the world, including Africa, Latin America, Europe and Asia. And although they come from very diverse backgrounds, they have a common bond of being “rooted in Christ”.

We seek to help them connect with each other and adjust smoothly to campus of various staff members and groups:

There is a one-day orientation for new international students priot to freshman orientation. for Monthly activities are planned to encourage fellowship and our Coordinator is available to oversee all immigration needs and requirements.

Apply to Bethel as an international student.
