I love this school. Met some of the best people, both friends and professors, and had excellent opportunities to grow my faith.
I had an okay experience here, but looking back I really wish I had gone somewhere else. If you didn't grow up going to school with all the other ELS-synod kids, you'll be pretty lonely. It's also very cruel to students who are LGBT+, and if you are liberal and pro-choice, you will also probably be mocked behind your back. There's a professor who makes racist remarks in class, a professor who was in a far-right militia, and a professor who mocked a blind student in her class. There were also some phenomenal professors, but the bad ones really make it not worth it. It really is an echo-chamber for the most part, and I wouldn't recommend it.
The quality of BLC has gone down significantly in the past years.
While a handful of professors are fantastic and provide properly challenging academics, the number of students that they enroll who are vastly unprepared for collegiate academics causes many professors to teach a watered down version of their subjects. The lack of academic challenge leaves many students unprepared for life outside of college, especially when combined with the school's lack of diversity.
The cafeteria is not great. They lack basic allergen information, and provide very few options for people with even common food concerns, such as lactose intolerance, or information about nuts in desserts. This is dangerous, but they make no effort to change it.
Several dorms do not have air conditioning, and laundry is frequently stolen. The school avoids reporting sexual assaults by victim blaming and requiring impossible standards of evidence.
You'll be left with debt and a high-school-like college experience.
I love the family atmosphere of bethany! All people usually know most people! There are many things to get involved in on campus and you should never be bored. The professors are extremely friendly and always willing to help. The class sizes are be individualized making for more hands on learning.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Bethany Lutheran College is 80%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Go somewhere you feel comfortable and don't be afraid to try new things. This is the place where you find out who you are and you can't make find your true self unless you are willing to make mistakes. Remember you are paying for your education so don't waste your education time, but make time to meet new people. You can learn inside and outside of the classroom this way.
The winter! Bethany is in Minnesota and the winters here can be pretty rough sometimes. All in all, though, I am extremely satisfied with the school
Arts, religious affiliation, size, and communications program. It handles the hockey broadcasting for local schools.
The Christian atmosphere that does not overwhelm or enforce ideas, but reflects it in many activities and classes
The most frustrating thing is lack of a coffee shop. There is a volunteer-run coffee bar which opens in the evenings, but it would be wonderful to have one open all day with a greater variety of coffee and pastry selections for a snack in the middle of the day or in the middle of the night.
A strong Lutheran school that is well balanced with professors that are willing to help you when it is needed and lots of friends to support you in all that you do.
Small and not inherently competitive, but endowed with a great number of resources and opportunities, this school permits the self-motivated student to excel beyond what many other schools could offer.
The kind of person who should not attend this school is somebody who is not willing to work hard and study because the teachers really care about the student?s education and it would be a real waste of their time and yours.
The fact that I graduated with the honor of Cum Laude.
From all over the grade-level spectrum; freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors could all be in the same classroom for a given class.
I wish I had known how much support I would receive from the faculty and staff, the wonderful friends I would make, how accepted I would feel, and what a special place this is in general. Had I known these things, I would have been much more excited about coming, and would never have had any doubts.
