The most-photographed (and most widely familiar) site on the Bethel College campus, the front of the historic Administration Building, got a makeover this summer – replacement of the plaza in front of it. The work included removal of some old and ailing crabapple trees, which will require new landscaping, now in progress. In the meantime, maintenance worker Fred Unruh is shown here replacing the threshing stone that had sat in front of the building on the edge of the campus Green. The stone now has its own area marked by a new rock wall erected by grounds director John Wall and student helpers (photo by Melanie Zuercher).
The combination of community, service, and academics are what stand out to me about [being a] Thresher. With small classes, attentive professors, and the focus on service…students get the opportunity to excel in multiple areas.
