Bethel College, Alumni Newsletter

Lois Pannabecker


We just celebrated Bethel College’s 65th graduation ceremony this past weekend with the largest graduating class yet — more than 600! Visit our Facebook page to see photos from the weekend. We are excited to send these graduates out into the world and we look forward to hearing about their lives after college. It was also our pleasure to host members of the classes of 1952 and 1962, who led Sunday’s procession.

Though campus is significantly quieter with the students gone, there is still plenty of activity happening at Bethel this summer. May 19, we’ll host the Y2K reunion. If you are a 2000, 2001 or 2002 traditional graduate, don’t miss out on the fun and sign up today. June begins with academic and sports camps for children ages 7-17. Check out our camp offerings and sign your camper up.

Save the date for our Connection Point Camp Gatherings this summer. We’ll be meeting July 18 at Mancelona Camp, July 27 at Ludlow Falls Camp, July 29 at Prairie Camp and August 9 at Brown City Camp. We hope to see you there!
