Benedict College Reviews
Benedict college from the parent point of view. My daughter and I visited Benedict College during the Fall Open house 2019. Benedict College has a lot to offer you if you are ready to follow your our journey in life . Benedict is small and reserved for those students who enjoy their peace of mind and a little excitement here and there. Benedict has a lot of things to upgrade to catch the eye of the blind side. But keep in mind this is a historical black college we what keep our ancestors in mind of their value and vision and the struggle to educate ourselves first before you condemn others. Benedict dorms is where our scholars will spend 70% of there time and it should be a comfortable , clean and safe and friendly environment for our scholars. I will continue pray that every parent, scholar, faculty Member, President and Board of Trustees is in it to win it and we shall unite as one Benedict Family for our first alumni 1870 . A power for good in society!
My experience has been good! I have 2 sons who attended Benedict College. My oldest son graduated a few years ago after graduation he move back to Atlanta in currently working a great job! My other son transferred from Alabama A&M which was a bad experience after coming to Benedict his college experience has been a positive one. Staff support is great, dorm life could improve but I think that’s all college dorms. The police department has been very visible as a parent my two sons have had a great experience.
My online experience was average. The best part was that my professors were able to adapt to the platform, they answered emails on time and tried their best to explain the material. I even had one professor who called me personally to make sure that I understood what was being taught. Benedict is very serious about academics, which is a plus. I also, like the fact that the school was able to transfer online in a timely manner so that we can complete the Sprong semester. I highly recommend this college to anybody.
