Benefits & Services

Whether it's been a few years or a few decades since you last ate in the Dining Center or worshiped at a Vespers service, you're still a huge part of the Bethel community. There are some serious perks to being a Bethel alum!

Join the Alumni Book Club

We have partnered with PBC Guru to create a virtual book club for Bethel University alumni, covering lifelong learning, personal growth, novels and other books. The book club will connect through a private forum where all participants can discuss the current book and network with each other. Joining is completely free, you just have to get a copy of the book to enjoy. The book club will read one book every two months so that you'll have plenty of time for each book.

We take care of family. We know travel isn't cheap; we also know it's priceless to spend time with your alumni friends at the campus that brought you together. So Bethel works together with local hotels to work out a "Bethel rate" – just tell the front desk when you reserve your stay.

Read to your heart's content! Stop by the Bethel University Library to use resources on-site, or register for a free library card to check them out. Plus, dive into the collections of the Bethel University Digital Library, to discover Bethel's history and culture in old Clarion student newspapers, yearbooks, and photographs.

Tune in to hear messages from Campus Pastor Laurel Bunker and the Christian Formation and Church Relations crew. Other speakers are featured, too, like well-known authors and your fellow alumni who are also changing the world.
