3 College Junior

Athletics: Our athletics are a big part of our campus because we have amazing coaches, trainers, new facilities, and training and conditioning programs for our athletes. Our Rice Center, or our fitness center, is exactly how one would imagine having a membership at an Xsport gym because the facility is brand-new (only 3-4 years old) and all students use the machines, weights, and open gym.

Although our programs are built very nicely, our school spirit lacks in that not many students attend games. This is beginning to improve, but still needs a lot of work.

Overall Experience: Within the classes for your major, the faculty are extremely helpful and amazing at what they do. However, when taking general classes toward your degree, there can be some very great teachers that will allow smooth sailing through the class and challenge you as a student, but there are teachers that are not at all helpful and should have never been hired in the first place. Therefore, class styles differ. However, since Benedictine is a smaller school, all class sizes are small so there is an opportunity to be more than just a number in a classroom and gain a close relationship with your teacher, which makes the overall class easy to learn from and more enjoyable.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Job fairs are held on campus regularly throughout the year by our Career Development department because they want us to be prepared for our life after we graduate. That department is in charge of finding internships for students, working on resumes and applications, and preparing for life outside of college. They are extremely helpful and want to see students succeed.

The value of a degree from Benedictine is extremely high because our college is known for its challenging learning environment.

There are always opportunities for alumni to visit Benedictine and almost all of the students come back because they had an amazing experience here.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: We are known as the safest college campus in Illinois, so safety is never an issue on campus and the campus police make themselves very available and open.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Bendictine Unviersity is right next to the suburb Naperville, which is lively town filled with restaurants and night life options to take part in. There is never nothing to do around the area.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of restaurants in downtown Naperville which is only 15 minutes away.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: From what I have personally observed the school has acquitted Heath and Safety support on campus.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had a great experience at this school so far and am happy with the decision i made to come here.

5 College Senior

Academics: Being a Political Science major is awesome! It's a small student body but the department is continuously hosting events, guest speakers and community service projects. I feel that it is the most involved major in the school.

5 College Senior

Academics: For the most part any science major is going to be a heavy workload and a rigorous schedule. The liberal arts and business programs are much more laid back then the sciences.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: There is no greek life at Benedictine. Probably because it is a Catholic university. But, I am not sure why.

4 College Senior

Diversity: The campus is vary diverse and allows many opportunities for people with different backgrounds to work and interact together. The school encourages integrating with people who have different backgrounds then yourself.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: The financial aid process is no different than any other university.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I am a commuter student so I have no personal experience with finding off-campus housing. But, I know many people who life off-campus who have never complained about it being difficult on them.

5 College Senior

Majors: Most of the majors are vary easy to get into unless you are apply for a specific program that requires a special application process. If you get admitted into the university you can basically get into any major you want.

5 College Senior

Majors: I switched majors last year and I am so happy I did. The Political Science department is small and pretty much like a family. The faculty and administration actually care about your success and are willing to mentor and advise you every step of the way.

5 College Senior

Facilities: The facility and staff are warm and inviting, they are always willing to help a student if they need extra help. Class sizes are small so you get a lot of personal attention in class and all professors know your name. There is always school event going on to get student to interest with one another. There is always a big crowd for sport events and a contagious school spirit for Benedictine sports. There are many facilities around campus to do homework meet with study groups or research on a topic. The librarians are always willing to help student find resources for their projects or studies.

5 College Senior

Facilities: The small classroom experience allows your professor to get to know you as a student, which helps in the long run when you are looking for recommendations for graduate school. Every summer the school has BenFest which is a concert lined up with well know artists. There are other social traditions like Benofficial which gives students something to look forward to each year.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: As a commuter student I have little to say about the strictness of the campus life, but from what i hear from residence it is more lenient than other Catholic Universities.

5 College Senior

Diversity: Many students are Muslim. There is a lot of diversity and acceptance school-wide.

5 College Senior

Academics: The premed program at Benedictine is outstanding. Most of the professors are really involved and care about the success of their students. The lab work is high quality and many resources are available at our use. For Anatomy, we are one of the only remaining universities that do extended cadaver work.

5 College Senior

Academics: The professors in all departments are motivated and involved in student success. Small class sizes make professors more available.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Lisle and Downer's Grove have a few good places to eat. For amazing Mexican food, go to Los Burritos Tapatios on Ogden. It will blow your mind!

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Downtown Naperville is the best nightlife around this area.

5 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I've never had a bad interaction with police.
