Parents & Families

As your student makes the transition to Bethel, we want to welcome you to the Bethel family as well! 


Welcome Week includes activities for new students and their families to experience together, sessions, receptions, and a banquet planned specifically for parents. View the schedule of events for parents and families.

Parent Banquet

Where to Stay?

Your student has a place to stay, but what about you? There are plenty of hotels around Bethel that offer Bethel discounts. Here's a list of hotels and accommodations.

Even More for Families

The Office of Alumni and Parent Services is here to support you. From special events for families throughout the year to a parent newsletter with tips on helping your student transition to college life, Welcome Week is just the beginning.
