Classes here are challenging, certainly, but we're not paying private school tuition to take easy classes! Of course, the level of difficulty per class depends on the prof and the type of class (101 vs. Honors 311), but overall expect to have to work for your grades. If you're willing to do the work and show up for class, it won't be hard. The profs are great and ALWAYS available for help, and with our Writing Center one can always get help with papers, so even difficult assignments are totally manageable.

A unique blend of spectacular settings for a campus (lakes, forest, one of the best football stadiums in the country), capped classroom sizes (35), and affordability for a private university. Climate is full four seasoned, food is varied and plentiful, academics are rigorous. Curriculum shared with sister school four miles away (St. Benedict's)» Read More
This school has a very Benedictine feel to it and lays a heavy focus on community and valued. In addition to that, its pretty big on empowering women. The biggest knocks (which I think are HUGE) are the fact that this school is very very isolated and the nightlife scene is nearly non-existent, especially seeing as how the school is getting even more intrusive.» Read More
The campus is gorgeous with everything from the nature around it to its church. The dorms are bigger than most of the ones I've seen on my visits and the food is phenomenal! All of the classrooms and equipment looked clean and up to date.» Read More
The school has a wonderful staff that is always willing and able to help all students no matter the issue. The student atmosphere is unbelievable because the students are amazing. The Johnies will always open a door for a Bennie and everyone is nice and a friend to everyone else.» Read More
