We are #BethanySTRONG.
We have now been in-person on campus for a few weeks, and our public health measures appear to be working thanks to the commitment of all our students, faculty, and staff. As of today, Bethany College remains in the green level of our COVID-19 warning level chart, which is wonderful news for me to be able to report in our first e-newsletter of the 2020-21 academic year. I hope to be able to report the same news in every communication this year, so please continue to follow what we have outlined from the beginning: wear face coverings, follow the advised six-feet apart in social distancing, and regularly assess your personal hygiene and health status.
Along with the elation of a new semester, being back together also means we can publicly celebrate as a community, which we did during our recent Matriculation Convocation, and which I would like to do now for the students who made the President’s and Dean’s Lists last semester. With everything that happened last spring, our students still stepped up, and I am honored to be able to recognize them for their academic achievements. Congratulations!
Our fall semester continues to go smoothly, and we are excited by what is to come, including our virtual Homecoming in late October. I also want to thank our alumni and friends for their ongoing investments in Bethany College. The impact of COVID-19 is being felt everywhere, so to have the College remain a top priority among our esteemed alumni is indicative of the passion they have for this place and the students who follow in their footsteps. Thank you for caring so much about what matters most. #ONEBethany always. #BethanySTRONG.
