Voth Hall is a tight-knit community located on the east side of the Bethel College campus. Built in 2000, this three-story building houses 50 women and 40 men, separated into five wings. Each suite, with a maximum capacity of four, boasts a private bathroom, bunkable/loftable beds, desks, desk chairs, wardrobes, two chest of drawers and resident-controlled central heat and air.
Each wing has a private lounge area with cable TV and space for studying or hanging out with friends. Voth is famous for large bright rooms with big windows and for its convenient access to all other residence halls. Voth Hall is the only hall boasting a sand volleyball pit, five TV lounges, private study rooms, vending machines, ice machine and elevator.
For those who want to get involved in campus life, Voth offers many opportunities. Freshmen may become involved in planning monthly hall activities. Some halls have decorated their lounges, planned hall functions or become involved in Fall Festival fund-raising. Social programs have included bowling, cookouts, community outreach, Halloween parties, block parties, Christmas decorating contests and many others.
There are six Residence Life staff members in Voth Hall. The professional staff person is the resident director (RD), who lives in Voth Hall. There are also five resident assistants (RAs), one on each wing, to help facilitate a sense of community. The staff plans and presents programs throughout the year to help foster educational and social skills. The Voth environment is social and fun. Voth Hall is a great place to live!
