Bringing Funk to the Bunk

Brendan Whalen pounds the final nail into the wood, with his dad by his side in the garage, their project is finished. Whalen, a freshman, builds and sells bookshelves for lofted dorm beds that give students a storage space by their bed. These Top Bunk Bookshelves, as Whalen calls them, act as a headboard with shelf space that gives students a place to keep things by their beds. They are made-to-order with customizable color and can be purchased for $40. Jon Pytlak, Whalen’s roommate, purchased a bookshelf for his own bunk because he was tired of reaching down to his desk to grab his phone.

Letter from the President

I get the impression that to the Student Body, the Board of Trustees seems like this large, mysterious body — a group of people who no one really understands. We, as students, sense that they are significant, but we are not really sure why. I asked a few individuals what they knew about the Board of Trustees and here were a few of the responses: “I know they meet,” “not much,” and “it’s a group of people with a lot of money.”

President Barnes talks about CCCU and Homosexuality to Faculty Senate

Perched directly across from a gaping hole in the oval of faculty, Bethel’s president Jay Barnes wore an ominous look, showing little excitement for the coming conversation. President Barnes had one hour to address the faculty senate meeting about his letter, co-authored with Scott Ridout, president of Converge Ministries addressing the churches affiliated with Converge Ministries. Their letter was an affirmation to churches’ congregation that both Bethel and Converge, in the wake of uncertainty with the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU), would continue to hold fast in the traditional beliefs of marriage between one man and one woman.

Does Anybody Hear Me?

For music students, the risks of hearing loss seem obvious. Yet, I’ve almost always been the only person wearing earplugs in all my musical activities.

Guarded Heart

A security guard with a brown paper bag was knocking at the door. Professor William McVaugh opened the door during Human Anatomy Lab and all McKenzie Van Loh saw was a heart being returned. McVaugh assured the guard it was a pig heart, not a human one.

Missing Men on Missions

Over the past two years, Bethel’s Spring Break Missions Trips have seen a decline in male attendance.

MISP: Mayo Innovation Scholars Program

For the first time in school history, Bethel University is taking part in the Mayo Innovation Scholars Program (MISP). MISP is a program that works with college students to assist Mayo Clinic Ventures, Mayo Clinic departments, and Mayo researchers in assessing new product submissions.

“Such A Pretty Young Lady”

Formerly a pageant champion as Miss Brainerd Lakes, Bailey Wachholz now represents the Alzheimer’s Association as an advocate and a published author. The senior recently wrote a children’s book called Such a Pretty Young Lady: Grandma’s Journey with Alzheimer’s, a true story inspired by a family she knows from her home town of Nisswa, Minn.

The Great Divide

The first sentence of Bethel’s value statement reads as follows: “Bethel University is a vibrant, Christ-centered educational community.” The campus’ concept of community revolves partially around the physical togetherness Bethel’s space provides — all academic buildings are connected via skyway and underground tunnel as well as all dormitories within walking distance. But when the Anderson Center, previously named Pine Tree Center, was purchased in 2013, questions regarding how the new building will assist with Bethel’s space needs began to surface.
