Your Visit, Your Way

Our personalized visits to campus begin with a meeting with your admissions counselor who will provide details about the admissions and financial aid processes as well as answer questions you may have about life at Bethany College. You may also be meeting with faculty, coaches, residence life professionals or others you have asked to meet. This is YOUR visit. Make the most of it!

Walking Tour

Following this meeting, a student guide will lead you on a campus walking tour. Our student guides love telling their stories and answering questions, so this is a great opportunity to learn firsthand what it’s like to be a student at Bethany. This tour requires approximately one hour so wear comfortable shoes! If you have asked to sit in on a class, please be prepared to stay for the entire class (generally one hour). In total, your campus visit may require three hours.


Open House & Informational Sessions

Group Experience

Would you prefer to interact with other students also considering Bethany College enrollment? Open House/Information Session events include information sessions about admissions and financial aid for both you and your family. Move from this session to an Academic Session featuring opportunities to speak with faculty who represent each of the academic programs available at Bethany. This is a great opportunity to explore our academic offerings! Interested in student clubs, organizations, or athletics? You can learn more about them in a third session!


Walking Tour

Conclude your day with a campus tour and learn more about our history and some fun facts! Open House events generally require four hours (more if you join us for lunch) and are offered at scheduled times throughout the year.


Virtual Visit & Informational Sessions

Can’t make the trip to Bethany quite yet, but want to learn more about us? Consider a virtual open house. The format of our Virtual Open Houses closely follows the on-campus event with presentations focused upon the admissions and financial aid processes, academic life at Bethany, social life at Bethany, and a virtual tour of campus.


Virtual Tour

Our interactive tour lets you explore campus buildings, learn about student life, and discover the vibrant atmosphere that sets us apart. It’s your chance to experience the essence of Bethany and envision yourself thriving in our unique community. Get ready to dive into a virtual adventure that brings our campus to life—your future at Bethany awaits!
