What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
I would rate Benedictine University with a seven the the campus is pretty small so people tend to be in your business all the time. The parties are good but they are not epic nothing really big happens not too many people party on campus considering the strict rules the school had imposed. The professors are rally nice depending on who you get some even curve the grades for their students.
