What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
Bethany College is a small non-sectarian, liberal arts college affiliated with the Disciples of Christ, in which you are immersed within a close-nit community surrounded by the beautiful hills of West Virginia. Bethany is secluded from society so it is easy to focus on your studies, yet Bethany is still within a good distance of Wheeling, Steubenville, and Pittsburgh. If you want an area that provides you with a great environment to study; a small community to know everyone; and a helpful, relaxed, and caring administration/faculty... Bethany College is a great place to attend.
