Benedictine College Reviews
Rating 3.44 out of 5 531 reviews
Benedictine is an amazing institution to learn and develop new friendships. They take pride in their academics and athletics, and wants every student to achieve greatness. They have a student body of 2,000, so class sizes are small. You also get to have an opportunity to have a great relationship with your professors because they will actually know who your are.
I never took online classes from this college. I don't think they even offer online classes regularly.
This was an academically rigorous four-year school with plenty of opportunities to participate in the community.
The school really doesn't care about its students. They will lead you on a goose chase with no answers if you have any problems at all. The job prospects out of the school are also very slim as its a not very well known school. You'd think the school would be more Catholic, but no. Seems like drinking is the top activity on campus and fights are common as well. Depressing atmosphere. Professors are under qualified and don't care about students either. Save your money. Go to a state school.
Online classes are even worse. The school really has no reguard for student success online or in person.
The professors did really well with meeting the students needs as we all tried to adjust to the new situation
Overall Benedictine is great! However, some things I wish had been different was the obvious catering towards athletes simply because they were athletes
I was hoping to major in art, and then graphic design when it became a major, and whereas there is a lot happening in development and growth in those academic departments right now, I found it was insufficient to fuel my development as an artist and I felt unprepared for a professional career. The general education courses I took were excellent. The campus and academic facilities are lovely and well kept. However there was something left to be desired in student care and wellfare, and I think the school could benefit in offering student care in student guidance, nursing, and therapy. The faith life on campus was also a major part of my positive experience there.
Lovely little school, very unique vibe and promising future. You have to be catholic or you're not very welcome. There's two types of students there: an athlete or a jesus freak , not much in between. Parties only on Sunday (by that I mean at mass) which is cool if you like classical organ music or only like red wine. The dorms were cool, I liked the 70s architecture (1870s i mean). The food was alright, reminded me of middle school lunch because it's always pizza or nuggets and no one uses the salad bar. Love life there is kind of hit or miss, you gotta know some bible verses on the ladies or talk about winning high school states to get some. For a good time I recommend car pooling to Walmart or staying on campus with the monks (which i refer to as the black klansman, no difference I could see). Be sure to brush up on your philosophy and know your religious beliefs before you come because buckle kiddo you're in for some Ora et Labora brah.
The teachers are very knowledgeable, the campus is beautiful and it is a very Catholic place. You can pray the rosary at the grotto, go to mass every day as there are many chapels and time choices. There are always activities available on campus. so you don't really need to leave.
Benedictine College is a very prestigious catholic college. Benedictines academics are top-notch and the professors are very helpful.
I love Benedictine College for its many opportunities. I have made many friends here. I love the community we all have here with each other. The professors and classmates are great and I am always having fun. I wish the campus food was a little better.
It is a place where you can get into your catholic faith. The people are very nice. My teacers were great and they really cared about the students.
I have had an overall very good experience so far at Benedictine College. My professors have done a good job teaching me the material and helping me when I need it. I have excelled in my classes and there is a great community here. The main thing I would like to see changed is the food.
An overall excellent School, great academics and excellent professors who are invested in each student. Administration can be difficult to work with, residents life office is very bad at their job, which is unacceptable considering it is a resident school, and cafeteria food is awful.
Very unprofessional RAs and administration when dealing with situations. They are more concerned about money than student safety. They do not investigate situations properly. Wouldn't dare return to this school. Worst experience ever.
As only a freshman, I can only speak from a small pool of experience. But so far the professors seem genuinely interested in students and happy to help. The dining hall food is absolutely atrocious.
