Even if you don't live at Bethel, we still consider it your home.

So, as a commuter student, make yourself comfortable. Get connected to what's happening on campus. Take on a leadership role in Bethel Student Government (BSG). Attend Sunday night Vespers or play intramural broomball!

Our 800+ commuter students are an integral part of our community, and we take care of them, making sure their needs are met.
