My overall experience with the school is good. I currently take online classes so I have not had much face to face contact with a professor my interaction and communicate is through student engage. I enrolled in a math class last year that required me to go on campus and that experience was good. The instructor explained the work assignments I detail, and showed examples giving step by step instructions. She was very passionate I carrying out the mission to assure that students understood the work and also that each student would accomplish his or her goal to understand the work and pass the class with a greater understanding of the work concepts. So I would say based on my experience Benedictine University is a good school to attend.
