Bethel University - Comments and Student Experiences |
The faculty put NO care into the lives of their students outside the minimum requirement for academics. There is nothing to do on campus (very necessary for a small Christian school), not enough study/lounge space and the food monopoly is poor and over priced. You are required to pay for parking that is non-existent - I have been late to class many a time because I needed to wait for a spot.
Besides the lacking extras, Bethel is only concerned with one type of student: the suburban white evangelical. They are trying to cultivate a "multi-cultural" image but are not taking any real steps in that direction. The student body is non-receptive to people that are different and there have been several racial incidents, one that made the news.
The staff is Kemps bucket vanilla: most of the good professors are in the process of leaving, and they seem to be taking anyone to fill their spots. All are of a very non-diverse background. MANY of my class have been taught by people who obviously unqualified: both a waste of my money and my time, usually with class sizes way to big for this type of school.
I want everyone in ear-shot to relay this info to everyone they know look into colleges. Bethel University is not a good place to get an education. If I can save at least one person from this pain then it is all worth it.SPREAD THE NEWS!!! Choose an alternative.
