My favorite things about Bethel University

My favorite thing about Bethel is the people. Many places have beautiful buildings, a fitness center, and good food, but few of them have “my people.” I enjoy being surrounded by high character individuals who love Jesus and live a life of joy and passion. Another thing I like about Bethel is the competition. From “Cheer Night” during Homecoming week to Bethel Football games, you can tell that we want to win – Not just in sporting events but primarily in life, and that’s a big deal. 

My favorite places on Bethel's campus

The Monson Dining Center, the Ping-Pong Table in Getsch Hall, the path that leads to North Village, the Grounds Crew Shack, 2-D Design Studio, and the Robertson Center Gym.

My favorite Twin Cities/Minnesota sites

I really enjoy the outdoors and interacting with God’s creation, particularly fishing. With that being said, I enjoy spending the warmer months around Minnesota lakes, rivers, and forests. Two Harbors, MN is a northern town on the shores of Lake Superior and has always been a special place to me. I also enjoy the Taylors Falls, MN area on the banks of the St. Croix River. 

Before working at Bethel

I graduated from Bethel in 2015 and worked in sales for over a year. I am happy to be back at Bethel; I love this place!
