Lissa Diaz

Bethel University will offer in-person and online visits July 19-23 as part of Indiana Private College Week, an initiative of Independent Colleges of Indiana (ICI). A complete list of participating campuses, event schedules, and registration information is available at

Bethel will also host a special Pilot Preview Day for 21st Century Scholars on Wed., July 21, designed to help Scholars complete requirements of the Scholar Success Program. The program focuses on 12 college-prep activities, mandatory for Scholars but recommended for all students, including visiting a campus, estimating the costs of college, searching for scholarships, and submitting a college application.

Additionally, aspiring private college students have access to a new search tool with accurate employment and salary statistics, key information about the long-term value of their prospective undergraduate degrees. Conducted in partnership between ICI and the U.S. Census Bureau, the Post-Secondary Employment Outcomes (PSEO)visualization tool can be found on the U.S. Census Bureau’s website.

“We want all students and families to discover that an Indiana private college education is within reach in terms of affordability,” says David W. Wantz, president & CEO of ICI. “In addition to federal and state grants, including the 21st Century Scholarship, ICI colleges and universities provide millions of scholarship dollars to students, making a top-flight college degree a dream come true for tens of thousands of students. Furthermore, the new PSEO visualization tool offers prospective students and their families valuable information that demonstrates the return on investment of a college education.”

Visitors ages 16-20 will have a chance to enter a drawing for a Microsoft Surface or Apple iPad mini during their Bethel campus visit. Learn more and schedule your visit at out our visit page or call 574.807.7600 today!
