Q: What made you choose to attend school so far from home?

A: I visited multiple schools and Bethel just felt like home. I wanted to attend a school farther from home so I could be independent and relatively self-supported.

Q: What do you plan to study at Bethel?

A: I’m hoping to major in neuroscience and maybe minor in music.

Q: Do you plan on playing sports or being involved in music or theater at Bethel?

A: I definitely will be involved in music at Bethel. I plan on being in the orchestra or an ensemble as well as the Bethel worship team (like Vespers or something).
