Orientation is an opportunity for all new students to adjust to life at Bethel before classes begin. It starts with new student move-in, orientation for all new students (including commuters) and a picnic around Bethel’s Reflection Pond. For your planning purposes, download the 2017 Orientation schedule. (PDF) Deadline to register for the picnic is Aug. 14.

During this time you will connect with the campus community and spend time with your First Year Experience (FYE) block, a group of 25-30 other students you’ll take two general education classes with during your first semester (freshmen only).

Wear casual attire and be ready to have fun!
