Bethesda Celebrates Graduates


Bethesda College recently celebrated ten students as they walked across the stage at Concordia University Wisconsin

Bethesda College recently celebrated ten students as they walked across the stage at Concordia University Wisconsin to receive their Certificate of Applied Learning after successfully completing two years of college.

During interviews, students revealed how important Bethesda College is to their development as independent employed adults through experiences such as internships, dorm living, and college classes:

“I am more mature because I am learning to solve problems in my life, and I am learning to get along with others, and I am getting more confident about my life.”

“I learn about myself and the community when I work at my internship.”

“I never thought I could make so many friends.”

One of the biggest benefits of Bethesda College at Concordia University is the impact BC students have on everyone on campus. BC students have changed the views of many on campus who now see people with disabilities as their friends and someone who can teach them a great deal.

Bethesda College is now admitting students for the next freshman class that starts in the fall of 2018. Students must be 18 and over with significant disabilities. Students and families interested in learning more about Bethesda College should contact Kristine Leonard, senior director of transition services and director for Bethesda College at 920-262-6529 or Kristine.Leonard@BethesdaLC.org.
