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.
I love Benedictine College, from the professors, to the classes, to the vibrant faith life, to the other students. Benedictine - as a liberal arts college - does not merely focus on preparing each student according to a major, but focuses on giving the student the best of everything, including a well-rounded education.
Attending Benedictine College was the best decision I have ever made. The atmosphere around the entire campus is beautiful and it is fully engrossed in the Catholic faith. Everyone is truly looking out to make your experience the best it can be, and it is easy to find a friendly face anywhere on or off campus.
Benedictine is a place you'll love to call home. The community, education, and general atmosphere is second to none.
Benedictine College is a small liberal arts school, with a population of only a couple thousand. The benefits here are amazing, everyone is kind and helpful, and always willing to study with you. Located in the middle of campus is the student success center which is there as a study space or a space that anyone can go to if they need free tutoring!
Benedictine College is a great college for anyone to attend. The atmosphere is very friendly. I would recommend anyone to come here. The professors are determined to teach and help the students with anything and everything.
I really enjoy the sense of community that the give provides through events presented by college and the living environments. Not only is there a good community here but the people here are really welcoming and kind. People will hold doors for one another, use manners, and want to get to know strangers. The down side at this school is that the food is not the best and there are a lot of religious people here who do seem to judge.
The community is fantastic and there is an effort from the faculty and staff to really know the students.
Absolutely amazing school! There are courses for every interest, and you are exposed to so many different courses as a liberal arts college. The pillar of the college are upheld, and even though it may seem strange to live on campus all four years it is a blessing in the long run! Highly recommend Benedictine to everyone!
Wonderful college! God is truly present! The staff and professors made me feel at home right away. Have the opportunity to pray with the monks was truly a blessing. I know that I will grow in my Catholic faith at this college.
Benedictine College is a wonderful learning environment where the faculty and staff are always willing to help. The campus is beautiful!
The people at Benedictine are such kind and loving people. The community at Benedictine is amazing that is one thing I am going to miss when I graduate is being sounded by such loving people. The faith life on campus is also great everyone loves Jesus and is not afraid to share their faith. One thing I wish would change is for our cafeteria to have better food.
I had a wonderful experience getting my BA in Journalism & Mass Communications at Benedictine College. The community, spirit, and faith life are outstanding! The people I met here became more than just friends...they are family!
I graduated from Benedictine and now my daughter goes to school at BC. She loves it. The students at this school are genuinely happy and they like their classes and teachers. Other schools we visited the churches were empty. This school has two churches and many chapels on campus and they are full every day. They have done so much to the campus. The new dorms are beautiful. They are just building a new Science building that will be state-of-the-art. You can actually get to know your teachers. Benedictine College is a wonderful place to spend your college years.
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.
I think Benedictine is a very mediocre education for what you are paying, hence my decision to find a better option with a greater education.
I think Benedictine is an amazing school that provides multiple opportunities for students to flourish and succeed.
