bethany is a great school to attend if you're looking for something small and close-knit. it's impossible to walk to class and not have someone smile and greet you by name!

Bethany Lutheran College is a nice, small, christian college. I like going here mostly because I feel as if I fit in. Even though I am states away from home, I feel like I'm home at Bethany Lutheran College.
