Benedictine University Reviews
I love to BenU Mesa branch campus! Such an awesome private school experience. It is a small campus but filled with a great environment for students. Located downtown Mesa, a fun little place. It is a great private school investment, with great programs, majors, clubs, and NAIA athletics.
The subject matter was diverse which allowed you to explore various avenues of public health but looking back on it I think this made it harder for me to realize what area of public health was a good path for me. I recommend taking the opportunity to talk with your professors and advisors as they are often working on very inspiring projects and can offer you some advice. If I were to improve one thing about this program, it would be to incorporate more service learning opportunities for students so they can network and get experience prior to graduating.
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.
