Student Life

Haury Hall

Haury Hall, located on the south side of Bethel’s campus and the closest to all the action, houses our first-year college students.

The building has three levels, each with two wings. Haury houses approximately 80 women on one floor separated into three wings and 80 men on two floors separated into three wings.

Haury Hall offers an at-home feel with a lounge area, laundry facility, kitchen and community style bathroom with individual shower stalls on each level. It is a very social residence hall and there is always something going on. The Hub lounge on the first (ground) floor is where many Residence Life activities take place. The Hub has a pool table, ping-pong table, cable TV, ice machine and vending machines. It is also a great place to study, offering a side lounge with tables and chairs.

Another popular feature of Haury Hall is the sun deck. This fenced-in deck allows students to catch some rays and is also a venue for hall functions throughout the year. The main floor lounge is a good place to gather with friends. Living in Haury feels much like living in a big house. Residents create a close family atmosphere, leaving you feeling as if you have multiple brothers and sisters.

Haury Hall has one professional staff member, the Resident Director (RD), who lives in the building. The RD also serves as the Coordinator of First-Year success and is responsible for aiding your transition to life as a Bethel College student. The RD is aided by six Community Assistants (CAs), students who facilitate programs and events for you to learn and grow in addition to serving as a mentor and resource.

My hometown is Dallas, Texas, and I’m a defensive back on the Thresher football team. Family, religion, academics and football are the most important things in my life. If you ever feel like you are alone or just want to hang out, come on by and we can talk. 

Krystin McKelpin - I am known around campus as “Li’l Bit,” and I am from the rainy state of Washington. I am a junior nursing student and this will be my third year on the Bethel softball team. If I am not studying or on the softball field, you can catch me working in Thresher Shop or planning activities around campus for students to partake in. My goal for this school year is for everyone to feel part of the Bethel community. I am very excited for the upcoming school year and to meet all of you.  

Lauren Nehrbass - I am a sophomore from Parsons, Kansas, majoring in communication arts. I am involved in choir and theater on campus, as well as the Bethel pep band and steel drum band.
