Special Interests Clubs

BSG special interest clubs and organizations provide students a place to express themselves through dance and art or dialogue about politics, social justice, and environmental issues. You don't need to be affiliated with a particular department, major, or career to join.

Want to get involved? Contact the student leader. Want to start a new special interests club? Contact Kelsey Spies.

Anime Club

The purpose of the Bethel Anime Club is to appreciate and increase understanding of Japanese animation and culture through the critical viewing and discussion of artistically valid and Bethel-appropriate works. The goal is to experience both the personal pleasure that comes from interaction with a good piece of art and the intellectual and spiritual stimulation and growth that occurs when things are seen from a different culture's perspective. Furthermore, the Bethel Anime Club desires that more people be introduced to and become appreciative of the world of Japanese animation.

CityFront Ministries

CityFront is a ministry of students that on each Saturday night head downtown Minneapolis to Hennepin Avenue (Warehouse district) and Dinkytown (U of M area), places of great need in our city, in order to be a Light in Minneapolis and share the love and hope of Christ to the people that we encounter.  Our goal is to bring love, service, and consistency to our brothers and sisters, and meet spiritual, emotional, and physical needs. CityFront provides space for the Lord to use us, Bethel students, to show grace and offer love, because we have been shown endless grace and love ourselves because of the Cross.

College Republicans

Bethel University College Republicans exist to promote the principles, ideals, and thoughts of the Republican Party at Bethel University, and to aid in the success of Republican candidates and ideas in our area and Minnesota. We engage in these goals through regular meetings, speakers, political activism, service projects, and social events with like-minded conservatives within the Bethel community and across the metro area and state.
