A transformative experience

As a top-tier Division III school, Bethel produces competitive teams whose athletes excel both on and off the field. Here, the influence of athletics reaches far beyond our nationally recognized programs. Athletics are a life-changing experience for our 500-plus student-athletes—about 25% of undergraduate students. While pursuing success on the court, field, and track, Bethel student-athletes transform as women and men.
