Bethel University is ranked number 29 on the national list of “Best Christian Colleges & Universities” by College Consensus. The ranking combines the published rankings of a wide selection of trusted media outlets, with the more trustworthy student review sites.

According to College Consensus Marketing Director Carole Taylor, the Consensus goal is to have a comprehensive ranking. “It’s not just one voice stating an opinion – it’s many, many voices, computed objectively and equally,” she says. “The College Consensus method allows every institution, from the richest and best-known university to the smallest and hardest-working regional college, to demonstrate what they do best.”

College Consensus also places high priority on the student experience. “Students who are actually there day to day have as much say about their college as experts who have never visited, making sure that all of those perspectives [are represented] mean an even playing field for every college and university,” says Taylor.
