Inscription
Bethany College, located one block west, is a small, liberal-arts based college solidly rooted here in Lindsborg.
Established by Swedish Lutheran immigrants in 1881, Bethany is a college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, owned and operated by the Central States and Arkansas/Oklahoma Synods.
From the earliest days, people of Lindsborg have valued and promoted education. Bethany evolved from 11 students in the sacristy of Bethany Lutheran Church, to an academy in a modest frame building, to a full college housed in "Old Main," an imposing brick building of six stories.
Bethany College today celebrates a tradition of appreciation for learning, spiritual thought, music, the visual arts, and hard work inherited from its Swedish-American founders. The college awards the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Music Education, and offers 50 majors and concentrations. Its primary focus is on four-year, undergraduate degree programs which prepare students for specific professions as well as in traditional liberal arts disciplines.
A member of the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, Bethany fields teams participating in fifteen intercollegiate sports.
