Virtual BU!

Be a part of BU — virtually!

COVID-19 can’t stop Bethel University! BU will be popping up again in 2023 with an option of virtual classes on Zoom. Join us to keep the learning, teaching, and community building going strong. If you’re new to Zoom, check out the links in our Resources section below for help getting started.

How it Works

Just like always, BU will run from March 1-31, with creative courses and meet-ups taught by neighbors and local businesses. Just like always, it will be 100% free and open to anyone.

  1. Some BU 2023 classes will be held on Zoom, per professor’s preference. We will offer limited coaching and courses to help people get set up and used to Zoom. 
  2. BU 2023 will have a number of classes based on what will be manageable for our BU team. Courses will run for one session only, though we encourage groups to keep meeting on their own.

Taking Classes

Registration will open in February, and sign up will look much the same. As usual, we ask that you only sign up if you definitely plan to attend. We know it’s easy to skip a Zoom session, but your professors still have to prepare and count on you to attend! Be sure you’re on our mailing list to hear about signups.
