Throughout my time at Bethany College I haveBrightCommunications
Throughout my time at Bethany College I have had the chance to participate in numerous activities such as Greek life, clubs, numerous events, Relay for Life, editor of the school newspaper (The Tower) and the list goes on. Since the school is small, it gives you the chance to have the ability to do so many things. Furthermore, there are a great deal of alumni who keep in contact with the college and love hearing from students which can often times lead to an internship or even a job!

Question
Bethany College was the best 4 years ofBrightEducation
Bethany College was the best 4 years of my life. I was always told when I was a young girl that college would be the best time of my life, that I would meet the best friends and find a guy I would marry. Obviously as a naive teenager I thought everyone was not telling the truth, but they were. Bethany definitely was a place where I was easily able to meet people and excel in academics. I was able to get a teaching job in PA the first year I graduated, which is very hard to come by, with my degree at Bethany. These comments that I am reading about my alma mater are very disturbing because all of them are untrue. I was able to grow as a person at Bethany with the help of the surrounding faculty as guidance and friends. Bethany is not a drug infested place but the opposite. Could you imagine sending your child to WVU or any other state institution?? What would you find there but drugs awaiting you at your door step. Bethany is a quiet town and a place of its own. I would highly recommend this college to anyone, especially to upcoming education majors.

Question
The longer I stay at Bethany, the moreQuite BrightEnglish
The longer I stay at Bethany, the more I realize that it is a school that is slowly running itself into the ground. With a student body comprised primarily of muscle-bound sports players, the community offers little in the way of academic creativity or learning. Though there are activities and plenty of extracurricular, the only participants are usually those in a fraternity or sorority, as the rest of the student body does not seem to care about anything. Though the teachers are all competent and helpful, they often have to dumb down the material for the students in the class, making classes a chore for anyone with a decent IQ.

It is impossible to get a straight answer from the administration, and programs are often cut or dropped without any explanation or warning. Though the campus has enough money to change the flowers surrounding the fountain every month, it cannot seem to sustain a study abroad program or hire support for an overburdened staff.Do not come to this school unless your major is Comm or Physical Activities, you will not be able to transfer. The administration will either "forget" to send out your transcripts or you will not be a competitive student because of how low Bethany has fallen.
