A new Sheriff in town

Bethel’s security team has beefed up their fleet in 2015 with the acquisition of a brand-new Ford Interceptor. After 3,887 patrols and 1,888 escorts last year, Chief of Security Andrew Luchsinger sees the ride as a valuable addition.

Fear, Faith, and Food

Youth with a Mission, or YWAM, is a non- profit Christian missionary organization with offices across the world, YWAM draws students, both international and domestic, some of whom now attend Bethel. Given the intensity of travels students endure during YWAM, adventures of all kind, good and bad, are commonplace. Unique foods, close encounters with Muslim radicals and mosquito nets were all part of freshman Grace Gaitan’s experience in Borneo, Indonesia.

The things we do for (One)-Love

“It’s the Cane’s sauce really,” junior Nick Stern said. “Because at 5 a.m. when it was freezing, I was asking myself if it was worth it, but now that it’s over, I would do it again.”

The Mystery Letter

Senior Kristi Lauwers woke up to a crisp Friday morning in her little house off campus. For the outside hitter on the Royal volleyball team, that meant game day and no classes. She reached over to her bedside table and grabbed her glasses. Then her phone buzzed.

From Awareness to Action

Bethel Scorecard

In a recent ranking of colleges by the U.S. government, Bethel University’s score has people around campus raising their eyebrows. President Obama announced in 2013 that the White House and the Department of Education were working on a national college ranking system. When the results, called the College Scorecard, were released, Bethel’s score didn’t stack up well against similar schools in the region. Obama said the system is meant to evaluate colleges and universities on affordability and on return investment — the latter being information not many students know before choosing a school.

Crime Time

It’s 12 p.m. and the Monson Dining Center is at its lunchtime peak. Students are piling to get in line as Sodexo worker Geetha smiles, swipes and happily exclaims “enjoy your lunch!” Before stepping in line students plop their backpacks, with all sorts of valuables in stow, in piles against the wall leading to the DC. It seems second nature to students. Bethel isn’t known to have a large crime record, right?”

Andy Mineo

Celebrity spottings are not really a norm here on campus, but tonight, rapper Andy Mineo will take the stage in Benson Great Hall at 8 p.m. Mineo is in the midst of his biggest tour yet, Uncomfortable, named after his latest album released in August.
