DO NOT GO HERE! Grades will get messed

Dec 18 2012Business - Management and Administration
DO NOT GO HERE! Grades will get messed up, They will lie to you, They do not care what so ever. Every kid at this school wants out. The sports suck, the college life sucks, the theater sucks. They have a bar that serves underage alcohol and everyone goes down there. Its a terrible school and they make you take bull crap classes. I absolutely hate the school and would never recommend anyone to go here.The library computers are always busy, wifi never works and if your going for a sport you will be disappointed. I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH!! DO NOT GO HERE

Bethany College is a beautiful campus where you will learn a lot about yourself and you will make life long friends. The Faculty care about the students and they are always willing to help. Although some of the core requirements are boring your actual major is interesting. Sometimes Bethany can take a little bit of getting used to but if you stick around you will make lifelong friends, recieve a great eduation and never resent a single day spent there. Our alumni network at BC is great and because it is such a small close network they are great about helping you get internships as well.

Bethany College has a spiffy website and their history might fool you into believing that this is a worthwhile place to study. However, as soon as you start to look into what students are saying, you will realize that this is a hellhole of a college. They suck in decent students who didn't do their homework when applying to college, and then make them take worthless classes (Freshmen Seminar, anyone?) which won't transfer out, making it nearly impossible for students to transfer.

The school recruits and gives scholarships to athletes, meaning that the vast majority of the student body is involved in competitive sports. This is a negative because most of these kids (yes, kids) are from the ghettos of Youngstown, Columbus, and Pittsburgh. While diversity might be positive in theory, it has not had a positive effect on this campus. Violence and crime are rampant on the campus, and there are rapes being reported every few weeks. For a college of 800 students this is very alarming. It's also a well known fact that about one half of the entering freshmen class will have flunked out, dropped out or transferred by second semester.

If the student body was alarming enough, think about this: at the end of this school year (11/12) about 35% of the faculty will have left, moving to other academic institutions. Why, you might ask. Because this college pays their hard working faculty next to nothing. Funny, seeing as this is an "institution of higher learning" and yet the faculty are not well taken care of.

The only positive thing that I had to say about this college was actually about the faculty. However, my favorite professors are all moving on after this semester. This leaves me wondering how much longer this college will survive. Without the dedicated faculty, what does it have to offer? Especially since the college sold their mineral rights last year, there could be drilling/fracking going on in the very near future.

If you're reading this and considering Bethany college, JUST SAY NO. Unless you're ACT score was below a 16, you probably do not belong here.
