What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bethany overall does a good job of caring for their students, as class sizes are small and professors are usually pretty good about helping you out. Bethany could use some improvements in their facilities around campus and in their cafeteria food. They are decent for being a small college in the middle of Kansas but could use more food places in the town itself as well as some improvements within the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school and I feel that the professor do a great job at connecting with the students. When the students need help they can just ask their professor and they will go out of their way to help students who aren't doing so well in the classroom.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Stay focused. All of those fun things will be there later. The campus socials, the homecomings, the parties they will still exsist after you've done your work. You must learn how to manage your time, time management is the key. Use sticky notes, use planners, set reminders on your phone. ( you have a smart phone, USE IT.) I can't stress this enough, make sure that you constantly post your upcoming assignments around your room, make sure they are visible so that way you don't forget. I know that boy is super cute and he's totally checking you out, but you have three homework assignemnts due at 11:59pm! Stay Focused! Don't let these things distract you, there's nothing worse than recieveing a "C" because you would've rathered partied than do your 20 minute assignment! STAY FOCUSED! You don't know it but in a year, you'll be at home sad because you negelcted what should've been your number one priority. School comes first, everything else can wait, fun doesn't expire and every tick or tock from the clock you spend not working, is going to cost you. Stay Focused.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

One of the reasons I chose Bethany College was because of the size of the college and the small, close nit community. There is a great, reciprocated support from the citizens of Lindsborg for us college students. Because of the small college campus and number of students that attend, we have a low student to teacher ratio. We have so many opportunities to be active members of the classes and have ample opportunities to receive extra help if needed. Another reason I love Bethany College is that everyone knows eachother and everyone can find their niche to feel comfortable in.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back to high school my senior year and talk to myself I would say that I did a great job making decisions. During high school, I made some decisions that may not have been the most popular ones with my peers. I stood up for what I believed in, stuck to my morals, and made ethical choices on a daily basis. I admit that it was a difficult thing to do, but I held to what I believed was right. I believe that making these decisions gave me practice of saying "no" when I reached my college days. So, I guess I would tell myself, "Stand for what you believe, practice saying what you need to say, and trust in yourself. Follow your dreams, set your sights high, and strive to do your best in everything you associate yourself with. When you are familiar with these ideas, they fall into place when you are out on your own. " Perhaps the most important advice I would give myself is to ask for help if you need it. It won't make you a weaker person, it will make you a smarter one!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Bethany College is a wonderful school that anyone can attend and find success in! Students that don't know what they want to do "when they grow up" or students that have a plan of achieving a bachelor's degree in numerous programs would do well here. There is an abundant amount of activites that students can participate in to help make their college career memorable. This is a campus that will help you become the person you want to be. The only thing that would hold you back is the amount you can dream. Awesome! That is Bethany College!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Avoid the word "no" when addressing positive peer pressure. Although course work can be demanding and overwhelming, part of the college experience is discovering you! If you have studied and made the grade, you deserve to have a little fun. Thus, if someone invites you to go bowling, say yes. There's a basketball game at 7? Put on your spirit wear and stand in the bleachers. Board games in the student union? Go ahead and go! The best way to meet people and locate your niche is to attend all sorts of events, even if they are a bit outside of your comfort zone. Now, going outside of your comfort zone doesn't justify pulling a Kat from "Ten Things I Hate About You" and dancing on tabletops after a drunken escapade. For every invitation to go to the movies, there will be ten invitations to have a drink. Another part of the college experience is navigating the answers to difficult questions. In order to solve these tricky situations, remember the reason you're there: to get an education. If the invitation puts your degree in jeopardy, it simply isn’t worth doing.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A Bethany Student should be self-motivated and active. Opportunities, such as job offers, scholarships, or internships, are not handed out because the faculty isn't large enough to inform every student of every opportunity. The options are there however, and it takes a motivated student to take advantage of the great breadth of opportunities the college has to offer.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Although Bethany has traditionally been an artistic school, home of artist Birger Sandzen and host for of the Messiah Festival for over 130 years, the funding for arts all over Kansas has been drastically cut. The focus in the midwest has switched to athlete-education; however, we have a new Dean of Students, Provost, and Athletic Director who are ensuring that all students are guided under the same principles and penalties. So though the attention has been diverted from strictly athleticism, there is still a lack of interest and funding for the arts at Bethany.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Hey friend. Quit being a dick. You are smart and creative and have the capacity to be so kind, so stop thinking you're better than everyone else. As soon as you realize that most people are doing their best and have their own dreams and their own insecurities, the better your life will be. Learn how to study. Even though US History is the easiest class you ever had, I guarantee your college History class will require some actual critical thinking. Alcohol can be fun, but don't ever try to solve your problems with vodka. You aren't a very good artist yet, but you will be if you work hard. Always remember why you want to be an artist and don't let a failed professional turned professor tell you, you can't do it. Remember you are loved by many, and never let a boyfriend, girlfriend, or roommate feel like you aren't worthy of love. Buy a filter, the water is gross here. Remember you are here to learn, don't waste your money and your time by half-assing anything. You're going to be fine. Live the life you have imagined. Love, Dave

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Towards the end of my high school career, I had my life all planned out. I was more than ready to work my hardest to get myself through college by applying for as many scholarships and even working two part time jobs. The one thing that I regret having planned for myself was my living arrangements. With any sort of opportunity, I would have lived with close friends to withold a more sociable life. With all the time and effort I put towards school and work, it is hard to find time for my past friends and to make new ones. During college, I realize that it is extremely important for me to have the support and love of friends during the most stressful times of my life. Friendship is one of the most important bond that a person can cherish because when we do not have our family around to comfort and help us, we have our second family, friends. Friendship is as equally as strong as the bonds we share with our family.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Going back in time and being able to talk to myself as a senior in high school I'd have a few things to say. First of all, that grades and academics are everything. I'd tell myself to work as hard as I could to get the best grades I possibly could as well as to get involved in as much as I could. Getting involved in college once you arrive is the fastest way to get over being homesick and a great way to meet and make many new friends. The next big thing I'd tell myself is to try new things and to try my hardest at those things. Doing your very best in everything you do is the best way to make yourself a better person. All in all, I'd tell myself to work to the best of my abilities on my grades and academics as well as getting involved and to never give up.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I usually dont brag to much about my school but when i do it's usually about my track coach.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most fraustrating thing about my school is how all the teachers care about the students but as you go up the rankings into the board and just the people in the offices how you can tell they just want your money.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would like to encourage myself that college is not a place to fear. When incoming freshmen visit, they get this feeling of fear college. They fear the new life, the social environment among others, or they fear the classes. This feelings are experienced by everyone and myself, I felt this. Being far from home, I try to motivate myself to stay busy with school work, athletics, or other activites on campus. Being able to watch myself grow up into the college life and witness myself walking on campus, very nervous. I would encourage myself to be talkative, energized, and outgoing with anyone. Facing reality now, I want to redo some changes and tell some friends what I think about them or how I feel about them. Anyone can be a college graduate, smart or dumb, it wouldn't make a difference to try your best. This is what I would tell myself; to make 4 years of college very exciting and memoriable.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Bethany College welcomes anyone with the knowledge and wisedom of setting a path for their future. Bethany College is a positive and safe campus for any college student. In my opinon, I am lucky to be here with such great friends and families who encourage others to try their best with their academics and athletics. I like to encourage younger students to try our college and see what they think about the environment and the social life. If they are in sports, have them try practicing with the team.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I like to brag about my running career and how much it has impacted me with my physical appearance and physical health. I also like to brag about the lifestyle on campus. The campus is warm-hearted and students around campus love to shout out, "hi", every so often.

My school, I would have to say is very caring for both the well being of the students and their future.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Through my first semester of college I have lived at home, off campus so that college would be more affordable. However, if I could talk to my self as a senior, I would tell myself to try and live on campus in the dorms. I know the reasoning was because of the costs of college, but living off campus I feel makes me miss out on many things such as being a part of the students, making friends, and just simply experiencing the college life. Telling myself this would I think make me have a better college experience where I gain more insight on how living "on my own" really is. My goal is to be awarded a scholarship so that I will be able to afford to live on campus.

What's unique about your campus?

What I really like about Bethany College, is the the closeness that the students and the faculty have. At Bethany, you are able to have that close relationship that you couldnt have at bigger universities. This school cares about the success of it's students and does everything it can to prepare us for our future and that is very comforting to me.
