A Thresher is a student, a musician, an athlete, an artist, a nurse, a faculty member, an employee of the school, an administrator, a part of this community, a friendly face, a piece of the puzzle.

Opportunities for Participation: Forensics

Bethel has a long history of success in its forensics program. Bethel is one of only six colleges and universities in the nation – of any size – to qualify for the American Forensic Association National Individual Events Tournament (AFA-NIET) since the tournament began in 1978. Another plus is that we fully fund travel and competition expenses for our forensics team.
