Bethany College hosts potential scholarship recipients every year during Kalon Weekend, giving them the opportunity to tour the campus and participate in events such as the luncheon and a variety of leadership seminars.
Following the luncheon and keynote address, three-person teams composed of a Bethany faculty or staff member, a current Bethany student and an alumnus, conduct in-depth interviews of each candidate to complete the evaluation process.

“Seusstacular” Celebration Marks Re-Opening of Children’s Library
The event, sponsored in conjunction with the Bethany College Department of Education, featured games, skits, read-alouds, raffles and prizes for children, all themed around classic Dr. Seuss stories.
The Children’s Library, under the guidance of Heather Ricciuti, director of libraries and learning resources since 2009, has evolved from a small collection of children's materials to a fully renovated and redesigned children friendly environment on the main floor of the T.W. Phillips Memorial Library.
A formal ribbon cutting ceremony took place with President Scott D. Miller and the family of the late Dr. Lynn Adkins, who donated the funds in 2007 for original incarnation of the library. Adkins’ husband Thomas Lyons, daughter Toni Robinson and her husband William, along with son and daughter William and Grace, and Heather Riccuti also participated in the ceremony.
The “Seusstacular” event involved a variety of faculty, staff and student groups. Angela Icard, assistant professor of reading education, and Ricciuti are worked with Heather Holeva, a sophomore psychology major from McDonald, Pa., to host this event as part of her Kalon Scholar project.
