The online event will announce the Student Leader of the Year and the Greek Senior Man and Woman of the Year. In addition, Resident Adviser, Greek Life, and Service Learning awards will be presented.

In March, Bethany College transitioned to remote instruction in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, pushing many of the college’s traditions to a digital format.


Bethany College, founded in 1840, is the oldest private college in West Virginia. The Bethany experience focuses on academic excellence in the area of liberal arts and prepares students for a lifetime of work and a life of significance.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
