Most Helpful Review for College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's Univ.

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.

    College of Saint Benedict is the best place, I could ever imagine myself as being a part of. I love the atmosphere; being able to look up and see a church close to me right on campus. I also appreciate all the help professors give to students, given class size.

    the college of saint benedict and saint john's university is a wonderful school. it has one of the most beautiful campuses, and being surrounded by about 6 lakes there's and hundreds of acres there's always plenty to do and to see. the student to professor ratio is low and allows for easy access to the professor, and they have a genuine interest in seeing their students succeed, and it's very easy to grow your professional network.

    CSB/SJU is perfect for anyone desiring a close-knit campus community. Class sizes are small, allowing the professors to really get to know students personally. Compared to the state schools my friends are attending, I feel my education, dorm experience, and overall happiness are superior.

    The College of Saint Benedict, or Saint Ben's for short, is an all women's university nestled in the heart of Minnesota. Saint John's is a men's university down the road, and the two share a unique relationship. All students take classes together regardless of gender, and have a shared experience throughout their four years.
