Bethany College is a complete waste of time.Business - Management and Administration
Bethany College is a complete waste of time. There is absolutely nothing to do except drink and do drugs. The teachers are about 2 years older than the freshman attending. I think that I learned basically nothing the entire time I was there. The buildings are completely run down and falling apart not to mention the wonderful fuzzy mold growing out of the vents in the shower. Oh, and if you are planning to eat, dont do it a Bethany, they have the most disgusting food I have ever had. There was also multiple rapes and virtually no lighting on campus. I went there for the equestrian program, and that went nowhere fast. To say the least that place is a financial drain with absolutley no gain.

It is a fineQuite BrightCommunications
It is a fine college in the hills of WV, if that is what you are looking for. Be wary of the comprehensive exams and the fact that credits from the freshman year are difficult to transfer if you decide BC is not for you. The comps are stressful, but, you feel great after you pass!

Bethany was a complete waste of my time,Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Bethany was a complete waste of my time, money, and credits. I would have to admitt they are good slaes people because they seem very convinsing when you apply. I went because of the Eqestrian Program. Sadly that was the biggest mistake of my life. The teachers, did not even graduate from college themselves, oviously Bethany does not do background checks either. When I attended the school they were having a serious problem with the security officers being to agressive. I did not notice the problem until I was Verablly harrsed by one of them. I made Three written complents and the school did nothing to insure my safty. The campus is to small, narrow minded, and alot of the teachers were once students there and they came back to teach. they have no sense of the real world. Being at bethany makes you feel traped and lonleny. If you liked high school you would like bethany, plus if you like drugs its the only thing to do there. Simply I would never reconmend this school to my worst ememy. And also they do not even have really majors, like Bussiness. If you go there You can never transfer out because they trap you in with make belive credits. DOnt try it, it was a waste of 20 thousand dollors.
