Bethel’s New President Launches New Student Media Center

President Gregg Chenoweth, Ph.D., will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Bethel's new student media center on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 11 a.m., followed by an open house of the facility.

The center houses all student media groups including The Bethel Beacon student newspaper, the Helm yearbook,, and Bethel Prime Time television news. This is the first time that all student media will be in one facility, giving students easier access to tools and opportunities to apply what they are learning in the classroom.

Chenoweth, who has a background in public relations and journalism, will lead the ribbon cutting and dedication. The space, which is located directly behind Bethel’s Sufficient Grounds Café and Campus Store, previously served as campus housing and was fully renovated during the summer.

For more information about the dedication and open house, contact Tim Ceravolo, director of student media, or 574.675.9277.
