My favorite things about Bethel University

Bethel has a very special role in higher education. This is a diverse community that loves, learns, and grows together both in and out of the classroom. Students, staff, and faculty genuinely care about one another as they pursue faith and excellence together.

My favorite places on Bethel's campus

There are many places I like on Bethel’s campus, but the Admissions Guest Center is my favorite. As a team, we work together to create a positive visit experience for every visitor and that all begins in the AGC. It is a place of hospitality, warmth, and welcome.

My favorite Twin Cities/Minnesota sites

I love Minnesota! My favorite places and spaces include the Midtown Greenway, Lebanon Hills in Dakota County, and downtown Minneapolis. It is truly unique to be in the heart of two major cities while having almost every outdoor experience within reach.

Before working at Bethel

I spent several years working as an admissions counselor in higher education prior to my transition to Bethel.
