What Alumni Are Saying

Bethany allows you to start at the campus television station as a freshman. Every other school I looked at made you wait until you were a junior to be able to participate in the campus production.” This hands-on experience at Bethany placed Ashley far ahead of her peers when she graduated. “I just knew I wanted to be in television, and I was able to hold almost every position at the campus TV station. It definitely prepared me and helped me to get into the field.
