Three animated films for fall break

in Culture Arts & Lifestyle/Entertainment/FEATURED by

Bethel University students can make the most of a Friday off by catching up on homework, or they could dig into some classic animated movies to inspire themselves to do that homework during the weekend. Inquiry class sophomores suggest these three: Cuteness Overload Despicable Me (2010) can simply be described as the opposite of despicable.  It tells the story of an evil villain who grows to love three young orphaned girls, the cutest group of girls anyone will ever see on a movie screen. The youngest girl, Agnus, will literally tug at the heartstrings when she does something cute, such as when she wins a stuffed unicorn and screams, “It’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!” It kind of makes you wanna die, of cuteness overload. Basically, if you don’t plan on watching this movie, then just consider yourself a hater of cute adopted orphaned girls that turn a hard evil villain…

From the ClariOnion Editorial Board (Sam Krueger)

in Columnist: Samuel Krueger/Opinion by

Our Official Response to Bethel’s Budgetary Shortcomings By Sam Krueger The editorial board recommends that all unnecessary furniture be disassembled and used for kindling in the furnaces. Heating can be expensive in Minnesota. In order to pay for the planned 70-foot bust of President Jay Barnes, we would also recommend that the campus be stripped of all salable granite in order to cut the deficit as much as possible. In order to prevent any further layoffs, three professors will be assigned to each classroom to teach their respective classes simultaneously. This will allow students to graduate 3 times as fast, opening up new spaces for potential students. This will also allow the administration to rent out two-thirds of all classroom space to another university, probably one that’s better with money. Bethel should immediately embark on an aggressive public ad campaign and volunteer to host the 2022 winter Olympics. All remaining…

By Laura Osterlund The Office of Christian Formation and Church Relations sent out a survey to every Bethel student Sept. 17. It asked questions about the spiritual lives of students and the impact of the Bethel community. The survey will be used to gauge where students are in their faith journeys and help campus pastors and spiritual leaders make any necessary changes in order to reach students more effectively. After taking the survey, Ryken Kreps, junior philosophy and psychology student, wanted changes to occur that reflect the desires of the student body. “I came here because it’s a Christian university first,” Kreps said. “I knew this was a place where I could experience God, and so I want that to be first and foremost in chapel and in worship.” Many questions in the survey challenged students to think…
