Event Description


The mission of Bethel University Young Alumni (BUYA)--alumni who have graduated within the last 10 years--is to live out Bethel's core values beyond graduation: to be Christ-followers, character-builders, learners, truth-seekers, world-changers, reconcilers, and salt and light.

We hope you'll join the BUYA Committee and other BUYA for this special week of events designed to help us grow together as a community and build relationships that will push us to better represent these values. Whether building a home or supporting a local professional soccer team, we're better when we're together.

Wednesday, August 1 - Thursday, August 2 | 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.

Join other young alumni for a day-long project to build homes in the Frogtown Neighborhood of Saint Paul, in partnership with Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity and Thrivent Financial. Gather your friends to work together on a crew, or meet new friends while you work together on site.

Cheer on the MNUFC Soccer Team
Saturday, August 4 | 7 p.m.

Saturday nights are for soccer, right? Join together with other young alumni and their families to spend a lively summer evening cheering on Minnesota's professional soccer team, Minnesota United FC, as they take on the Seattle Sounders. Our seats are located in the same section, so we can represent Bethel University proudly. We encourage you to wear your blue and gold to let everyone know we are there!

Tickets must be purchased through MNUFC*. Use promo code BETHEL18 to access the group tickets.

*Buy your ticket soon--only 100 tickets are available! Seats will fill up fast, so be sure to invite your alumni friends and their families to register soon.

We hope you'll add one or both of these wonderful events to your summer calendar. The Bethel University Young Alumni committee is committed to providing you with unique opportunities to connect with the Bethel University committee outside of graduation. We'd love to see you there!
