I would definitely recommend living on campus at least one year for the experience of community, which includes fun, faith, and scholarship. If you're in a nice dorm with a good roommate and most of the other residents are solid, then you will have a good experience. I lived in the dorm last year and it was good because I became independent, was able to participate in the activities sponsored by the Resident Assistants (RAs), and become part of a great community of girls! Now I would like to have my family living close so that I could live with them and commute because I love my family and it would be cheaper. But that not being the case, I'm looking forward to being back in the dorm, building new friendships and enjoying fun, faith, and scholarship with other girls my age. Our RAs were always helpful and cared about us.
Review Benedictine College
I am so happy to be attending Benedictine College! Given that I will be an adult when I graduate college, and I was an adolescent when I entered college, I firmly believe Benedictine College is where I will become the kind of adult I want to be. The formation and traditions at Benedictine really foster a great sense of community on campus.

The curriculum is challenging and even the coaches acknowledge that academics come first. There is also a strong network of alumni who keep in contact with the college so I know I will be able to find a job after I graduate. Employers who currently have Benedictine alumni employed at their company, or attended Benedictine themselves, know the type of person who graduates from Benedictine College. At Benedictine, the focus is not only on forming one's mind but rather the focus is in forming the whole human person.
sometimes I just want to say that they are doing their job. The RAs or at least the ones in the female dorms are looking for trouble and are very nosy. They treat everyone like a criminal. You are treated as if guilty before it is proven. The rules are very strict. The school is a wet campus but the rules are so strict that the campus is still not treated like a wet campus. The visitation rules are way over the top. There is no one of the opposite sex in your dorm from 12am to 11:59am. This rule is very strictly enforced and there is much shame associated with even a small slip up. Everyone in authority then assumes that something dirty was happening. There is also a huge stigma around sex in general around the entire campus even though it happens. Bodies are shameful as well. Way too much in the media, tv, websites, movies, the plays that the college puts on itself the content is strictly monitered or blocked due to "explicit" nature. Come On We Are All Adults!
