Love going to school here, the student life and student community is awesome. It really is like a family. Only problem is the small town not much to do, but Kansas City is close by so not much of a problem
Absolutely amazing college! There are always events happening, never a boring moment. The campus is gorgeous and the people there are some of the best you will ever meet. Lots of places to buckle down and get some studying done as well as areas to just hang out with friends. There isn't a whole lot to do in Atchison but the town is really cute. The only big thing is that the food is hit or miss, sometimes it's good but a lot of the time it's slightly questionable.
Benedictine College is a visionary experience aimed at creating future leaders in various top-tiered industries and professions who can think and problem solve effectively and lead companies toward sucess. This college is a cohesive experience without any confusion or indoctrination efforts. The faculty care about developing their students minds and careers in an open, challenging atmosphere that respects each student's perspective. Students who crave a collegiate atmosphere that respects their individuality and their pursuit of academic excellence free from ideological conformance will find a home here. Although the surrounding area of Atchison, Kansas is not the thriving metropolitan area that surrounds other colleges in our nation, the faculty and staff at Benedictine College more than make up for the lack of surrounding activities and night life by organizing countless student activities on campus. The area surrounding Benedictine College appears to be a safe environment.
Benedictine College provides a home to those looking for an exceptional liberal arts education, a beautiful and lively community, and a life-giving college experience.
One positive about this school is the pretty campus. location is in nowhere Kansas. A lot Kids at this school are weird because they have been sheltered their whole lives and will judge you if you are different from them. Ras are uptight and will look for reasons to fine you. Classes are hard because the professors are terrible. The food is bad!!
My sister in addition to many of my friends go here and it is a wonderful college! The community and faculty is great and the campus is beautiful!
Benedictine College has quite literally changed my life. The community campus draws people in and makes everyone feel seen and loved. The academics are challenging and encourage the students to stretch their minds.
Overall, it was a good school! The people and professors were all nice and the academics felt rigorous enough but not to the extent to where it is overwhelming. Decent night life with Kansas City having a lot of things to do.
The people around me have been great. I was very shocked (and skeptical) at how friendly most people are. I've had a great time with the professors specifically one of my theology professors. If you are interested in the catholic faith and learning more about it I would highly recommend coming to Benedictine. I haven't been there very long, but I have learned a bit of Catholic theology and natural philosophy that I think will be important to helping me navigate my way through the world. I also hear that if you are looking for a Catholic spouse than this is the place to go. Overall I've had a great time with the college and the only reason I haven't given a 5/5 is because I don't think I've had enough time at the school to discern that.
The school has been very helpful if I need to call and ask any questions. It is a strong catholic college.
The dorms do not offer many activities for freshman. The Catholics who should be kind and welcoming.....are not at all. Hardly knew my RA. The grading system is archaic. My gpa was lower because I got an A-.No opportunity for an individual to play on an intramural sports team. Would be nice to have more mixers for those who drink alcohol. Would be nice to have honor society sororities/fraternities.
The student success center is terrible. They do not care much about their students with accommodations. The food is awful and often raw. As someone who is Protestant….I often felt shamed by everyone. My dorm had mold and so many holes in the walls. I do not know where the money goes at bc.
Benedictine College has an amazing community built upon faith and reason. The recent changes made by President Steven Mennis have been incredibly successful. With the new academic buildings and dorms, students can enjoy a high-quality education with a comfortable stay. Built upon the values of St. Benedict's Abbey, which resides just uphill, the college has a strong focus on hard work and faith life. With an excellent Ministry team, students can take advantage of many faith-based resources including daily mass and confession that fit right into most schedules. Due to the Liberal Arts aspect of the college students are expected to apply themselves to things outside of their comfort zone. One will learn all about their field of choice while forming a foundation in all types of study.
Only big complaint was how expensive it was and how bad the café food was. In a ton of debt...even had tuition benefits. I had really great professors, except for one
terrible. don’t go. This was the worst experience some of my closest friends have ever experienced. From teachers that don’t want to teach to faculty and students making sure you know you are a different color, you won’t be missing out on an experience of bigotry and hate, Catholic or not.
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.
