Welcome Week

Whether it's your first time going to college or you're transferring to Bethel, we've got great things planned for you!

***Welcome Week information is currently being updated for Fall 2016 and will be posted in May.  Thank you for your patience.***

What is Welcome Week?

Welcome Week is your official start at Bethel. You'll meet new friends and experience some of the best parts of being a Bethel student. During Welcome Week you'll learn everything you need to know—where things are, how to get things done, who to ask if you have questions. You'll also make new friends and create lasting memories.

Who is Welcome Week?

We're a team of over 80 students who are excited to do everything we can to help you transition to Bethel and show you the love of Jesus Christ. We're a diverse group—biology majors to business majors, sophomores to super seniors. What brings us together is our love for Bethel and our excitement to have you join us.


Whether you are part of an early arrival group or arriving for our Main Program look for everywhere you need to be during Welcome Week!


Welcome Week includes activities for new students and their families with specific sessions and activities for just parents. View the schedule of events for parents and families.
