Why I Love Bodien

There is such a unique energy surrounding a freshman living space. Students are engaged and love getting involved whether it is a planned event or something totally sporadic.

Best Thing About My Job

Interacting with students in a so many different contexts. One hour you could be practicing a dance and laughing uncontrollably and then next sitting with a student in a really difficult but impacting moment. This job is never boring!

Number One Reason to Live on Campus

Relationships. Living on campus provides you the opportunity to be deeply involved with campus and experience hands on learning outside of the classroom. Living with others is a great opportunity to learn about yourself and how you interact with others. There also is something so fun about living with hundreds of your peers.

Favorite Bethel Tradition

The Homecoming Cheer Competition! A room full of hundreds of people doesn't get much more exciting than that.
