“There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.”
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

"A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels” (Proverbs 1:5).
When looking into universities, I know you are faced with many options. Each of you will have different needs and desires for your education and your college life, but I know you will find that Bethel has something for everyone. As an alumnus, I know the options firsthand—from the student life activities to the organizations/clubs to sports (school teams and intramural) to people who will become lifelong friends.
I found that every professor knew me by name and genuinely cared about my goals and my success. I made friendships for life and found that perfect balance between the social and academic communities.
God has played a key role in bringing me back to Bethel University where I am now in a position to help you and others like you get the education you need for the success you want. I am thankful for and excited about the opportunities before all of us!

Welcome to the Bethel University website. My name is Carolina Marulanda and I am so glad you decided to check us out. Bethel University is an amazing place where you can find diversity. At Bethel you can enjoy the benefits of attending a small university in which you count and still be surrounded with people from such diverse backgrounds. As a former international Bethel student, I can tell you that was the case for me. It was very significant for me to be part of a community in which the faculty and staff actually knew my name and were aware of my needs as an international student. Leaving your home country is not easy, but be assured that Bethel will become your home away from home. You will have the opportunity of meeting people from all over the US as well as from over 20 different countries. Working as the International Enrollment Counselor, I will assist you during your enrollment process. Bethel was the right place for me; I pray that it is the right place for you too.
