The College of Saint Benedict not only provides excellent academics but it allows you to grow as an individual through the clubs and organizations on campus. The small, liberal arts campus has helped me excel in my academics through one on one professor contact and the opportunities provided. Not to mention the people you will meet at CSB are some of the most passionate and down to earth individuals, and they want to help you with every aspect of your life!
Review College of Saint Benedict
I absolutely fell in love with the College of Saint Benedict when I first toured it after my junior year of high school. The atmosphere was amazing and both campuses were beautiful. The food on campus tastes so good, I even miss it when I'm back home. There's so many activities and clubs to take part in on campus! The academics are challenging and interesting as well.
I am so happy at CSB/SJU. The small size and Benedictine background makes for two schools with a strong sense of community and awesome culture all its own. Ever since my first day as a freshman, I have felt welcomed and at home on both campuses. I truly cannot say enough about these schools! My two favorite experiences so far have been being an elementary education major, and studying abroad for a semester in Greece and Italy. Being a part of the elementary education major is truly like belonging to a family on campus. Everyone is actively working toward the same goal. It's so rewarding to attend classes and spend time with people of a shared passion, and I'm sure other majors have simialr experiences. Because of the small class sizes, you really bond with people in the same field as you. Also, CSB/SJU has award winning study abroad programs, with opportunities in 17 different countries around the world. I had the amazing experience of going on the Greco-Roman trip, which was truly life changing.

Overall, I would not want to go to school anywhere else! The campuses are gorgeous, the people are friendly, and the academics and extracurriculars are wide-spread.
