Benedict College Reviews
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.
As a parent whose son went there for 4 years and is graduating ON TIME I can say my overall experience has been satisfactory. Still, there are are some underlining problems that BC needs to improve... hopefully they’ll work on it. I did noticed that they started doing a better job communicating with parents thru social media this last school year and they seem to welcome parents advice. 🤫 Management and staff are excellent and they address parents concerns immediately... Dealing with parents can be difficult and they prefer the students handle their business but they will help you respectfully 😬. Thx Benedict College for showing my child the way❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️. He did we did and HE IS DONE 🙏🏾 💂🏾♀️👨🏾🎓🥳😁.
The school is not that bad but unless your a upper class man it’s not that fun or exciting. From what I experienced the maturity is absolutely there. It’s very drama free but there’s a lot of unnecessary rules and a lot of your freedom is taking away such as the things you wear, the places you go, the time you have to be inside. It’s some things at Benedict I truly do not agree with but overall it’s not that bad as far as education.
