Student Life

There’s room to grow outside the classroom.

Your student life experience at Bethel will forever change you. Embrace shared moments with friends in residence halls or intentional living communities. Reach out to the community through our annual service day opportunity. Open your heart during chapel worship services.

Residential Life

From dorm life to Service Learning experiences, Bethel provides you the chance to connect with others and make a difference on campus and in the community. We have fun campus activities like intramurals, performing arts for viewing and participating, and clubs for specific majors or for leadership. If you need a job, there are options to explore. We also have a variety of dining options right on campus and many restaurants close by.

Explore where you can live: Men's Housing, Women's Housing, intentional living communities, and married housing.
Service Day: Explore how you can serve (campus-wide service day, food drive, packing food boxes, etc.).

Spiritual Life

Our mission is to train you to be ambassadors for Christ. At chapel, often referred to as “the heartbeat of Bethel College," you’ll unite three times a week with the Bethel community for a time of worship through music and teaching.

You’ll grow through experiences in discipleship groups, spiritual mentoring programs, one-on-one mentoring with faculty/staff members, Bible study groups, and more.

Finally, spiritual emphasis week challenges each student to focus on their own personal journey.

Catch the spirit now.

Life Outside Campus

A study abroad or task force experience takes you out of the classroom and into the world. You might choose a summer travel program to Indonesia or a semester task force trip to Spain.

Examples of task force trips are refugee ministry in Chicago, earthquake relief in Nepal, urban agriculture program in Indonesia, nursing care in Guatemala and a pilgrimage to Spain. Semester study abroad options all over the world allow you to live overseas and engage in service while earning academic credit. There are also summer travel programs to locales in Europe, Israel and more.

No matter where you go, you’ll come back a changed person.
