Benedictine University Reviews
I love Benedictine University! The neighborhood is nice and quiet. Also downtown Naperville is a couple minutes away with many stores and restaurants. I play lacrosse there and know the athletic department is helpful and friendly to everyone. The campus is small but beautiful with clean, chemical free landscapes and a quad for everyone to use. Some teachers are better than others (like every campus), but it’s easy to learn about each professor through students or even rate my professor.
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.
