The community here is great. People can be very welcoming, but like any other school, you have cliques and groups. I love the student involvment in the community.

Something that is unique about Bethel is we are a Christian Liberal Arts University, meaning you can basically major in whatever but it is unique in the sense that our faith is integrated in our education. With our general education requirements we become well rounded in various subject areas and our faith can apply in those areas as well.
