What Students Are Saying

4.22 Average Rating
My advice to you is to start looking early so that you have time to look at a wide variety of schools to determine the best fit for you. Last minute decisions can lead to misfits and unfortunate college experiences.

It is also important to visit the schools you are looking at to determine if they really are what they say. In this case, I visited Benedictine College and found that it was even more perfect for me than it had seemed online. I fell in love with the school from the moment I stepped off the plane. The staff at Benedictine were wonderful hosts and the students were so welcoming that I felt like a part of the family within a few hours. By the time I was leaving a couple of days later, I felt like I was leaving a second home.

Get involved early. There are so many opportunities for you to join clubs or organizations. By joining a club or organization it almost feels like you are joining a family and you will have those friends forever. At Benedictine you will make lifelong friends and the more you open up and put yourself out there the more fun you will have. Benedictine host dances and other activities a lot. That is where I met almost all my friends I had for the whole year. Just remember that you are there for school, so study and try hard, but have fun too.

VISIT THE CAMPUS. I had heard about Benedictine before I visited, and from what I could gather it was just another small Catholic college in the middle of nowhere. When I got there, I found a big, beautiful campus nicer than anywhere else I'd visited.
Tyler from Springfield, MO
for prospective students i suggest coming to visit the campus, because once you're here you won't want to leave. don't worry about being new or finding your niche--benedictine prides itself on its community, and for good reason. atchison is a little secluded, but i find that it's easy to make your own fun when you've got great friends and great resident life activities and staff. come check it out!!

be prepared for a hilly campus...a surefire way to keep off the freshman 15!

Get involved. Be a part of a club or organization that you enjoy. there are clubs for each different type of major that you choose from. There groups that do volunteer work, as well. Go to the athletic events. They are very exciting and will get you pumped up once you walk through the door. Meet new people. Benedictine College is a great place to grow in your relationship with God, others, and within yourself.
Marissa from Shawnee, KS
Make sure you plan to get some financial aid, it will really help you out here!
Nathaniel from Saint John, IN
Be friendly and open, Benedictine is like no other college. To some people it is intimidating coming to a new place with new people but because it is such a small school everyone welcomes you. Be yourself, be nice, and have fun.
