There's more to life at Bethel than classes & seminars

Beyond the green is a place students to share the joys and hardships of being a Thresher.

The End of a Tennis Season

The End of a Tennis Season

This past weekend were the conference tournaments for the men's and women's tennis teams. Unfortunately, neither team made it to nationals but that does not discount the great and successful seasons they had.

Music Department Happenings

This semester, the music department has been an exciting place to be. The weekend before last was a special concert where the Bethel College Chamber Orchestra got to play with the Newton Mid-Kansas Symphony Orchestra. We did some really awesome pieces like the Carnival overture by Dvorak, and Tchaikovsky’s March Slav. There was also an amazing baritone soloist and our very own Jim Pisano on clarinet. The orchestra worked really hard, and I think that the combined concert benefited both the Chamber Orchestra and the NMKSO. I felt like it was the best concert I have been involved in at Bethel–and it was very satisfying to perform. Read More

Be Prepared

The end of the semester is approaching, and this is the time when teachers will pile things on you at the last minute. Especially next week, which is the week before finals, there will be last minute projects, tests and quizzes, so hit the books and don’t stress, because the end is near.

Conference Play Begins Thursday!

For the men’s and women’s basketball teams, conference games begin tomorrow (Dec. 3)! This is when the season really gets exciting. In conference play each team plays everybody twice. So by the middle of January the second half of conference starts. But this week is when every game counts towards winning conference! Read More

Finals are fast approaching!

There is about a week and a half left until finals week begins! This is the time of the semester when everybody is flocking to the library, to the study rooms, as well as hiding in their rooms trying to finish the last minute projects that are due. Read More

It’s beginning to look like Christmas!!!!

I love coming and leaving the dorms and seeing the holiday cheer spreading rapidly. In Voth hall there is a well-decorated Christmas tree and garland all around to get ready for the coming of baby Jesus and that fat red jolly man that comes down the chimney with his many reindeer. Although I’m not sure how he will get into Voth without it having a chimney, but I’m pretty sure he will find a way. Read More

Pretending it’s still November…

It’s not just me. It’s the weather also. I won’t question the 55 degree warmth though… after 4 years of residency in Kansas, I’m not surprised anymore.And while we’re pretending it’s still November:I got to see Wicked! This musical (based on the novel by Gregory Maguire) has been one I’ve wanted to see for so very long. When two tickets magically appeared in the mail (thanks friend) I was giddy. And now one dream is fulfilled. Read More

Europe!

Hey there. So today I’m thinking about our upcoming European Choir Tour in January. I’m really glad that I’ve been able to be in this choir and have these kinds of opportunities. I really enjoyed our tour through the southwest last year, but I anticipate that going to Europe for 3-4 weeks is going to be infinitely better. Read More

One month Left in a Foreign Land

December is upon us! Christmas will be here in the blink of an eye (actually I just blinked now and it’s still not here), and I’m coming back to Kansas very soon! Now is the time to decide what I should do before leaving Ecuador. I have traveled so much I don’t have any other place I am DYING to go to, except to climb to the top of Cotopaxi, the second largest mountain in Ecuador. Read More

Roadtrip!

I couldn’t post this at the time I wrote it, but I hope you don’t mind.I’m currently sitting scrunched in the back of a van on my way back from visiting my family in Beatrice, Nebraska, for Thanksgiving. In the last couple of hours I have realized two very important things: classes start again tomorrow, and I don’t have my homework done. I suppose that for those of you who know me this doesn’t come as any surprise. Haha, I guess I could find it reassuring that some things never change? Anyway, I really love Thanksgiving, but not just for the food. Seeing friends and family again is always good. Read More

Preparing for the post-Thanksgiving push

Well, I’m back from Thanksgiving break, and things are as hectic as ever! Two papers, a test, and production night for the Collegian (our school newspaper) ALL this week! Yikesss!!! I have to remind myself that it’ll all be over soon–two weeks of regular classes left, then one week of finals. This semester has gone by sooo fast! I can’t believe it’s already almost time for Christmas break. Read More
