Why I Love Arden Village

Arden Village has its own unique flavor that you appreciate when you live in its warm environment. Students are always studying, playing games, working on projects, watching TV, or simply spending time together in our community spaces. It’s truly a privilege to be a resident of Arden Village.

Best Thing About My Job

Living at Bethel. I get the opportunity to live alongside Bethel students. They’re so fun and give me so much life. Despite the lack of a regular sleep schedule, having such meaningful relationships with Bethel students is the best part of my job.

Number One Reason to Live on Campus

Community. Getting to know Bethel and what it means to be a Bethel student while making lifelong friendships and learning how to live with others well is a very special time in life. Simply put, living on campus is fun. Every day provides the opportunities to make memories you’ll carry with you during your years at Bethel and beyond.

Favorite Bethel Tradition

Making funny videos for everything. The Bethel community has a habit of making funny videos for just about every official Bethel activity. Students pack Benson Great Hall to watch the Nikdag or Gadkin videos even if they have no intention of asking someone to go with them. Whether it’s The Show, Mr. BU, or anything else, I love to see how creative Bethel students can be.
