Bethel University relocates to new Wilma Rudolph Blvd. campus

After 11 years, Bethel University’s Clarksville satellite campus, originally located in Corporate Park,  has relocated to 2200-A Wilma Rudolph Boulevard.

Bethel, which opened as a private school in 1847 in McLemoresville, Tennessee,  has grown to be a large, accredited university with numerous satellite campuses.

The former Martin’s IGA market is now refurbished  to include five classrooms, and numerous offices in an open floor plan that accommodates an increasing student population and administrative staff, including  the registrar, academic affairs and recruitment. The move allows Bethel to nurture students from enrollment to graduation in a one-story facility.

Bethel confers Bachelor of Science degree in Management and Organizational Development or an online degree in Organizational Leadership. Graduate programs are also available online.

Bethel is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), and offers credits that are transferable to other accredited school including  Austin Peay State University and Vanderbilt. Bethel’s student population includes many soldiers who, because of Bethel’s individualized structure, can attend college locally or while deployed.  Civilians can continue their employment while gaining their advanced degrees. Bethel currently serves 200 students and the average age of a Bethel student is 30.

Bethel, which receives 80% of its students through referrals,  serves a growing population of soldiers, mid-life learners and professionals  with one-night a week classes and online classes. Each course runs five weeks, and each term lasts 20 weeks.

For more information on Bethel University, call Director of Recruitment Terry Morris at 931-551-9640, visit online, or visit the local campus at 2200 A Wilma Rudolph Blvd.
