Alumni Affinity Groups

Bethel University's community of 50,000+ alumni is becoming more tight-knit than ever before, thanks to alumni who are dedicated to providing opportunities for their peers to connect with one another and support Bethel's mission.

To receive invites to events and opportunities provided by these groups, keep an eye on the Alumni event calendar, and update your info so we can communicate with you. Are you part of a group of alumni that meets regularly and supports the mission of Bethel? We'd love to promote your group here, too! Contact us today.
