Bethany college students interviewed senior citizens for their class project in Foundations of Education, taught by Assistant Professor Gretchen Norland. The class focuses on the development of education and how it has been influenced by the values and beliefs of society over hundreds of years. This project gives the Bethany education majors a wonderful opportunity to hear stories of teaching experiences and to glean wisdom and advice from these retired teachers.
In May, Bethany College awarded honorary degrees to William E. Gusenius and John E. Hedeen and the status of professor emeritus to retired Provost and Dean of the College Eugene Bales, Ph.D.
Summer, fall, interterm, and spring graduates participated in baccalaureate worship and commencement ceremonies on campus. The event was live tweeted using the hashtag #bcgrads2013 to celebrate with both on- and off-campus Bethany community members. View the photo gallery of the event courtesy Turner Photography.
