Bethel's Student Life team is here to help you maximize your college experience. Many of us are former Bethel students who have lived — and loved — the Bethel lifestyle. We have a firsthand understanding of how engaging in student life can transform the lives of students, which is why we came back to ensure that current and future students get that same chance. Even our staff members who’ve only served in a professional capacity can speak to the impact our team has on the campus community. Day in and day out, we strive to create a challenging, supportive growth environment for every Bethel student.

Whether you’re an on-campus Pilot developing community connections through residence life or a commuter Pilot staying connected through campus-wide events, Student Life is here to help you fully experience Bethel’s vibrant community.
