There are a few things you can be doing to prepare for Welcome Week and your transition to Bethel. As always, if you have questions, please let us know.

  1. Complete your enrollment

    Admissions gave you a list of important next steps to take, including your housing application and class registration. Make sure you complete all items on your enrollment checklist as soon as possible.

  2. Finish academic steps

    Be sure to finish language and math placement exams, request transcripts, and buy your books so you're ready to start the year at Bethel.

  3. Pack and label

    If you're living on campus, your room will have a closet, bed, dresser, desk, and chair. What are you responsible for? Take a look at the packing list from our residence life staff, or check out this packing list (pdf) from a student's perspective. (These lists also tell you what not to bring: Two-prong extension cords, for example, are not allowed!) 

    As you pack, please label every box or item with your name and room number.

  4. Review Welcome Week details

    Check out your Welcome Week schedule, including move-in details, so you know exactly what to expect. Also review a campus map to become familiar with Welcome Week locations.

    Parents and families, we want to welcome you to the Bethel family as well! Please review these Welcome Week details just for you. We would love for you to join us at as many activities as you can. During Welcome Week and beyond, the Office of Alumni and Family Relations is here to support you.
