    Admitted Student Events

    Admitted students gain access to several special events hosted throughout the year: Christmas VIP Reception, Scholarship Day, and Early Enrollment Days. Each of these events are intended for incoming freshmen and not transfers.

    Christmas VIP Reception

    Chat with President Johnathan and Deborah Gering, enjoy desserts and hot chocolate, musical entertainment, and a reading of the Christmas story, plus receive a special Christmas gift just for you! At 8 p.m. all are invited to join the Lighting of the Green ceremony on campus with students, faculty, and community members.

    Scholarship Day

    Join us for a celebration of your hard work and your interest in Bethel College. Scholarship Day will include a ceremony with President Gering, sessions with faculty and advisers, brunch in the cafeteria, and the opportunity to interview or audition for scholarships in the early afternoon.

    Early Enrollment Days

    Enrolling in classes is a great step towards your future as a Bethel Thresher. Enrollment days are open to all future freshmen who have paid their deposit. Whether you are enrolling in person or over the phone, we'd ask that you sign up so that we can assign you an adviser.

    Phone enrollees:

    Once you complete the form, your admissions counselor will be in contact with potential 30-minute windows to enroll with an adviser in the morning.

    On campus:

    Not only will you have the chance to sit down with an adviser and enroll in classes, but you'll also have the benefit of attending sessions in: financial aid, student life, career services, Thresher Connect, and student ID cards.
