Connect To Purpose

Our new student (freshman and transfer) orientation program is designed to help you navigate your transition to Bethel College, both academically and socially. During Thresher Days, new students will interact with other new students and get to know faculty and staff members outside of the typical office or classroom setting and engage in various aspects of Bethel student experience.
