Ambjor Brown is a Bethel grad. “I played Powderpuff and broomball, and got injured,” she said. “Softball tryouts start February first every year, so I had to get ready as fast as possible to try out as a freshman.” Accordingly, she spent a lot of time in the athletic training room. She soon became an Athletic Training major.
During her sophomore year she went on a mission trip to Papua New Guinea, where missionaries from her church lived in a small village. Their home was destroyed by a typhoon, and Ambjor took interim off to help them rebuild. “The biggest project we were working on was laying down their hardwood floor,” she said. “It was literally jungle trees that they cut down.” Ambjor lived in the jungle for seven days.
Ambjor encourages students to take advantage of all opportunities Bethel offers. “You pay for 18 credits—fill them up! Take an extra PE course…do something new.” She also suggests that students make use of the free health and counseling resources Bethel provides. “It’s part of your tuition, you can go in and talk to someone who has a non-judgmental ear about anything that’s going on in your life…you’re never going to have that opportunity ever again.”
