Freshmen through seniors live in close-knit community that offers suite and “super-suite” style rooms.
There’s a sense of community so intense in the air at Oakwood-Slater.
Every door open and every person in relationship with others.
In most residential areas, it’s rare that students live in the same building all four years of college. Manges Hall seems to be an exception. Freshmen through seniors live in close-knit community that offers suite and “super-suite” style rooms. Manges is a space where you can plug in and engage our vibrant community by grabbing a meal at The Acorn Café, working on your New Year’s resolutions in the Sailor Weight/Cardio Room, hanging out with the ladies of Tuckey in the Great Room, or making yourself a late night snack in a shared full-sized kitchen. Manges also offers you a space to dig deeper through all-dorm Bible Studies in the ManCave and our annual Dude Week, an electronic-free, event-filled week. In Manges, there is always a spot with you at the table. Whether it’s sharing a meal or playing a board game, everybody is welcome. (Tuckey is housed in the Sailor Residential Facility.)
Brotherhood. Tradition. Acceptance. These are the core pieces of the Oakwood-Slater hall experience. Bethel doesn’t need fraternities because we have Oakwood. These four walls, 45 rooms, and 99 beds have been around for 52 years.
And if the walls could tell stories, they’d include late night Taco Bell runs, full scale Nerf wars, Dude Week, and our five-year undefeated run in the Oakwood-Manges Football Game. But mostly they’d talk about of a sense of community so intense it hangs in the air. Bethel’s not a party school and Oakwood’s not a party dorm. It’s also not the prettiest dorm you’ll see, but we can guarantee the Oakwood experience at Bethel is second to none. If you want to be a part of the Oakwood legacy and make your freshman year something you’ll tell your kids and grandkids about, start by applying today.
In Founder’s Village, our goal is to have every door open and every person in relationship with others. Our apartment-style living makes Founder’s a unique and lively place. It’s also great for those students who want to enjoy the privacy of and comfort of having more room than normal campus housing. Whether it’s space, community, privacy or a party, Founder’s is an incredible place to live.
