Unplugged is a project by Reboot that emphasizes the importance of taking time away from our phones and removing the toxicity of social media. This project is an outgrowth of the Sabbath Manifesto which is a interpretation of their ancestors’ traditions of spending one day a week by being in nature, unwind, connect with family, and relaxing. After talking about Unplugging in a Convocation at Chapel Feb. 20, Hankins shared his opinions about unplugging, his love of music and his overall outlook on life with student journalists in The Garage at Bethel. By Entertainment Staff The most important thing about unplugging to me is about reconnecting with relationships and people. If you use a saw every day and you never sharpen it, it goes dull.

in News by

A closer look at Bethel’s nursing program and what it takes to earn a spot in the select 90. Bri Shaw | Features Reporter Sophomore nursing major, Callie Guimont, held her breath. She had been waiting for this moment. Sitting in her bed, she carefully opened up the letter and began reading. She finally exhaled. Callie was one of 90 students who had earned a position in the nursing program. Immediately, Guimont called her sister and told her the good news. “(My sister) got really excited and started yelling over the phone,” said Guimont. “Then I told my parents by adding a Google calendar event for the white coat ceremony.” Receiving that letter came with a lot of hard work for Guimont. Before being considered for the program, all nursing students are required to meet certain standards. Found easily in the Bethel catalogue, the criteria include the following: having sophomore standing, earning a…

Royal legacy student workers share their main objective of Bethel University’s Roar Day that took place in the Brushaber Commons last week. By Bri Shaw | Features Reporter The BC roared with Royal Legacy student workers chatting about how alumni directly impact current and futures students at Bethel Tuesday Oct. 11. Royal Legacy Programming Coordinator and BU alum herself, Erin Van Sickle, educates students walking by about why they do Roar Day once a year. “ROAR day is a one day giving campaign that takes place almost exclusively online,” Van Sickle said. “It’s a day where alumni, graduates, friends, even parents of the school help out and support current Royals and crucial programming by giving gifts online.” Although many students have commonly misinterpreted ROAR day tying to Roy the lion in some way, “ROAR” actually stands for Raising Our Alumni Rate. Alumni participation rate, or APR, is a critical measurement of a college’s reputation.…

Bethel University’s campus pastor Matt Runion campaigns to end applause caused by tray dropping in Monson dining center. By Bri Shaw | Features Reporter Bethel University’s campus ministries pastor Matt Runion saw his worst nightmare become a reality. Four years ago, Runion eased his way down the second staircase in Bethel’s Monson dining center alongside his seminary intern. Right when he was about to reach the landing, his foot caught on the carpeting of the third step and he began to stumble horrendously. He fell hard to his knees, and the only thing left in front of him was his empty tray while everything else rained to the floor below. Even his glass cup, now broken in shards, flew over the railing. The glass sprinkled on various Bethel students’ trays while dining below. “Every time I tell that story people ask ‘Did people clap?’,” Runion said. “But I don’t think people did just because of…

Initiation at Bethel? It’s a little hazy.

A look at freshmen initiations and Bethel’s hazing policies. By Brianna Shaw | Staff Writer Bodien resident assistant Madison Chau and her fellow RA’s slip away from the freshmen gathered in the dorm lobby. A PowerPoint plays, describing Bodien’s rules while the RA’s hastily put on black clothes and swim caps and lather themselves in blue paint as if it were lotion. Once they are completely covered in blue, they wait outside for the freshmen to finish the PowerPoint. Following strict directions from their RA staff, the freshmen pour outside in a single-file line, dead silent. Dorm initiation was right at their doorstep, and the freshmen didn’t have a clue what was about to happen. “I was very confused,” freshman Katie Sandquist said. All of the Bodien freshmen were handed a piece of bubble gum and told to stand in a circle around their RA’s. The RA’s commanded them to chew it while…
