    Benedictine is relatively inexpensive as opposed to other colleges and you receive a great education with specialized teachers in your field of study, free events to attend with added prizes, great resources to use towards your career and classes, a one on one connection with teachers and classmates, great clubs and sports opportunities, and great support from councelors, advisors, and financial aid departments.
