  • Jan-12-2014 I am a current student here

    The food is very good, and we have a beautiful dining hall. We have a wide array of food, but it doesn't necessarily change that often. Because of that, the food can get quite repetitive.

    The food is amazing. My favorite place to eat is the stir fry line. There is also a sandwich like which is better than subway.

    There are so many choices on what to eat and I haven't got sick of the food yet. All of the food is very good and you can even make suggestions to the staff and they respond back.

    I've been told the food at Bethel is better than other schools. Some days are better than others, but it's never awful.

    Awesome dining center. Eight different buffets, several of which are custom-made, like Subway. Not just sandwiches though--stir fry, pasta and salad too!

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

  • Feb-06-2013 I am a current student here

    There is Greek life but it is not particularly obvious or well known. Most Greek life seems to be centered on alcohol and parties, and since that kind of activity is frowned on at Bethel, the Greek life is more centered on medical students and their studies.

    bethel does not have greek life per-say. there are no fraternity or sorority houses, but within certain majors there are national groups you can join.
