Welcome Week is an opportunity for all new students, including commuters, to prepare for life at Bethel University before classes begin. It starts with new student move-in on Saturday, Aug. 15 at 10 a.m. and a picnic around Bethel’s Reflection Pond at 5 p.m. (see schedule below for additional details).
During this time, you will connect with the campus community and our First Year Experience (FYE) block, a group of 20-30 freshmen students you’ll take two general education classes with during your first semester. Transfer students are a part of an FYE group that also meets during Welcome Week and at various times during the first semester.
