Bethel truly is a place that shapes the person, while allowing each person to help shape Bethel, even if only a small bit.

Student Senate

Student government at Bethel College provides an excellent opportunity for student involvement. It is modeled after the U.S. federal government, in that it divides power between an executive and legislative branch. Student government functions independently of the college administration, though it does not assume an adversarial relationship.

The 18 elected offices, as well as many appointed positions, allow for individual initiative on issues directly affecting students. The executive branch is composed of the student body president and the student body vice-president. The Senate is composed of three senators from each class, two commuter senators, one senator from the International Student Club and one senator from the Multicultural Student Union.

General elections for freshman senators are held during September. All other offices are elected in April. All full-time students may vote and all full-time students having adequately circulated a petition of candidacy and maintaining a 2.0 GPA may run for office. Appointed positions are filled by the student body president with the consent of the Senate. Appointments are generally made in May, but may be made as needed throughout the year. Regular meetings are held twice a month.

Meeting minutes are available from the Senate secretary.
