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

What is Welcome Week?

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

If you're an incoming student for fall semester 2022, mark your calendar for Welcome Week on August 25-28! More details will be available later—please check back this spring. 

In the meantime, check out our before-you-arrive checklist so you can plan well now.

Families

Parents, guardians, families, and other support people, we welcome you to the Bethel family too!

If your student is a new student for fall semester 2022, please mark your calendar for August 25-26! We'll have on-campus family programming on those days as well as online sessions for you to learn and engage before Welcome Week starts. We've also prepared a before-you-arrive checklist so you and your student can start to plan now.
