Hello from Joel


B.A. in Psychology, Bethel University


Shoreview, MN

My favorite things about Bethel University

The fantastic people I've met who come from so many different places and backgrounds. The intentionality in those people such as roommates, classmates, coaches, and professors who care and make me a better person. Additionally, the way I have been challenged and have grown in my academics, sport, and faith.

My favorite places on Bethel’s campus

The outdoor track, the Dining Center, and really wherever my friends are. 

My favorite Twin Cities/Minnesota sites

Bemidji, Long Lake Regional Park, and Black Sand Beach.

Before working at Bethel

I completed my undergraduate degree at Bethel studying psychology, was a member of the track team, and was involved with Welcome Week every year when possible.
