Bethany's Best Week Ever

 

Bethany’s Best Week Ever, our version of new student orientation, is a week (or so) designed around you: 
  • Meet other new students, faculty, and staff 
  • Learn more about Bethany and the opportunities that await 
  • Get involved with activities and participate in events 

2017 events go from August 19–August 27.

Bethany’s Best Week Ever is designed to get your college career off to a great start! Throughout the week and your time at Bethany, never hesitate to ask questions. 

The following people are designated to assist you during new student orientation:

Campus Ambassadors are upperclassmen whose goal is to give you the best experience possible during new student orientation. They will be assisting with events and activities throughout Bethany's Best Week Ever. Look for them in the red and white tie-dye shirts.

Residential Life: The Resident Managers (RMs) are live-in staff members who provide leadership, oversight, and direction for our residence halls. The Resident Assistants (RAs) are student leaders who also live in the halls. While they will be a great resource for your entire time at Bethany, they also can answer any questions during new student orientation.
