Benedictine University Reviews
Benedictine University is one of the best small Universities a student can choose to attend. It has a new, state of the art business school, an extremely favorable professor-student ratio and a wide variety of quality academic degree programs. Its close proximity to Chicago gives students an outstanding choice of potential internships. Over 80% of fortune 200 companies employ a Benedictine University alum and that is an impressive statistic by any reasonable measure. I would recommend this fine University to any student seeking a uniquely enriching academic experience.
I love the size of the school and how involved everyone on campus is with many different activities. Being on a small campus makes it easier to make friends and succeed better in classes due to better communication with professors. So far, I have had many great professors that are willing to help with anything that is needed. Some things I would say that could be fixed here at Benedictine is there are many updates that need to be made to the school including dorm rooms, bathrooms, computers, laundry room, and many things like this.
The only thing I enjoyed from Benedictine University is the diversity of the students and the dedication of the professors. The school is located in a boring neighborhood and there are no entertaining surroundings. Most of the buildings are still old and very antique. The tuition of this school is way to high for the school to look like how it looks. However, the professors really encourage the students and provide all the possible tools in order for the students to succeed.
