    Tuition is about 13,000 a semester. The education is good, if you allow it to be good. Showing up to class and doing your homework is key. The college has many opportunities to help you in the future and it is a pretty chill school to learn and have fun. The food is good as well, so you will not starve and the dorms are regular, with dorm fun nights.

    You get to know faculty and staff personally and there is always someone who can assist you. As a small campus it is easy to get to know people. Most students can educate other students about where to go and who to talk to about different situations. We have mediums between faculty and students for activity interests and for request upon process.

    Benedict is an expensive school, so it can get tough. I really love this school but I believe the cost of it is a bit costly.

    No, we pay too much money ($27,000) for no reason. Local jobs won't hire Benedict students, the school has so many problems.
