    Although tuition at private colleges runs high, Bethany does its best to provide over 90% of its students with adequate financial aid. All done by friendly Christian people trying to help you afford your education.

    This type of education is one that will last you longer than an education at a typical University. You learn about God, your faith, how you can put your faith into you line of work and much more. Yes, Bethany is expensive, but it's worth it.

    free theater tickets for school plays, showing room (like movie theater) to play Video games and watch movies, and more. All of the professors (that I've had) really care about how you do and will do what they can to help you succeed! (that's just some of the high points.)

    bethany is the least expensive private school in all of minnesota. it's going to be very hard to beat all the individualized attention and small class sizes that are offered here. (for example, most of the upper division classes in the education department have 10 or fewer students!) even the general education courses (i.e. biology, religion, etc.) have no more than about 35 students.

    Bethany is a small campus. You get to know your professors and they get to know you. For that benifit alone I feel Bethany is worth every cent. Also, Bethany does give out a lot of merit-based scholarships, which helps mosts of the students, including me, in being able to come to Bethany. Great people. Great professors. Great college.
