Overall Rating

Bethany College is a very uneventful college. The students who are accepted are not of good quality academic or moral standing. There is a bar down the road where kids 18 or older come to drink 24/7. That is basically the only event or place to go on campus. They give the majority of their "academic scholarships" to males who play spots. For the money you pay here you do not get good quality of academics or student life. The college needs to use the money they have to update the academic resources, campus and their programs. The majority of freshmen leave after first semester. The sport programs are also under-developed. I came here under the impression I would spend 4 great years here, I'm a freshmen and I cannot wait to transfer as can other students. I would advisor you not to apply or come here, spend your money on a better college.
