My faith grew immensely during my time at Bethel, in part from being surrounded by so many wonderful friends and mentors who encouraged me to dig deeper. I have been challenged to ask more difficult questions while reconciling my faith with a world filled with so much injustice. Entering into dialogue with others about the messiness in life has really led me to grow closer to God.Katie Cudo '19
My college experience not only gave me the knowledge I needed to pursue a career in medicine, but also provided me with opportunities to gain real-life skills that increased my confidence as both a researcher and a Christian. Having this experience in a Christian environment allowed me to learn with others who share similar core values and reminded me that faith can exist in every aspect of our lives.Hannah Manion '18
