Student Life

Join a supportive, Christ-centered community.

Students in BUILD experience fun, active days. Through living on campus and participating in activities, you'll develop a heightened sense of community and independence. You'll meet new friends, dive into your interests, and grow your faith—all with the encouragement of your peers, instructors, and staff.

Clubs and Activities

Joining a club or activity is a great way to pursue your passions and establish lifelong friendships. We encourage students in BUILD to fully participate in Bethel's campus life, whether that means joining an athletic team, writing for the student newspaper, or performing in theatre productions.


Beyond academics, there's something that draws Bethel students together—a shared love for Jesus. Through Chapel, Bible studies, and student-led worship services, you'll learn to own your faith and live for something more. 

Housing & Dining

As a student in BUILD, you'll live on campus with a peer in the program and receive support from nearby housing mentors. You'll also enjoy our award-winning dining services, which include a restaurant, a coffee shop, and an expansive, buffet-style dining hall. 

Peer Mentors

Academic, housing, and job mentors are part of Bethel's commitment to cultivating intentional community. You'll be paired with other undergraduate students who will help you transition to life at college, model life skills, and guide you through your schoolwork.

Student Services

We care deeply about the happiness and success of our students. You'll have access to health and counseling services, nutrition advice, and a brand-new, multi-story Wellness Center that will help you stay active all year round.
