Benedictine College Reviews
Benedictine is what you make it. Some of my peers and friends had a poor experience with the academics or the social life – but they also took the "easy A" classes that didn't require much effort and therefore didn't teach much, didn't push themselves to take harder but more stimulating classes that could have only earned them a B, and didn't seek out supportive friend groups. In my experience, and those of other friends of mine, most of the professors at Benedictine are happy to teach you as much as you want to know, there are many social opportunities for everyone regardless of whether you're Catholic or from the Midwest or in sports or not, and yes, there are real parties if you know where to look! The monks on campus even brew their own beer. So if you're going to college to get the piece of paper and get out...yes, you can do that at Benedictine. But if you're going to learn as much as possible, then also yes. You can definitely do that.
Benedictine is incredible! As a student pursuing a degree in science, the basis of liberal arts academics equips me to competently communicate knoweldge and understanding with peers and professionals in my field of study.
Becoming a student at Benedictine College has become a great opportunity. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. The professors do everything in their power to try to help you in class. Whether it is getting help on an upcoming exam, explaining the assignments, or simply giving advice, they always make themselves available. There is always fun activities happening on campus as well. People come together to enjoy sports, holidays, dances, club activities, and many more things! Having the opportunity to study abroad is also a bonus. I love being able to experience all of the Benedictine traditions.
