Getting involved with your alma mater is a great way to show your support, reconnect with peers, and meet current students.

By sharing your life experiences, you are providing invaluable guidance to help the College to continue to offer outstanding educational and life learning experiences.

Alumni and volunteer support is a key factor in enhancing the reputation of Bethany. We hope you can find a way to take time out of your busy schedule and GET INVOLVED. There are many paths to participation. Each program is developed with respect to your time while allowing you the greatest opportunity for personal satisfaction.

We encourage you to join AlumniFire, Bethany’s very own networking community that offers our alumni, students, and employees opportunities to connect with one another.

Give three students the opportunity to experience life at Bethany with the Alumni Referral Scholarship. Any student you refer is eligible to receive $1,000 each year they attend, up to $4,000.
