Benedict College overall is a great school. Life living on campus is honestly what you make it. Opportunities aren't really handed to you in the world and Benedict College makes sure you understand that.

Since I have been attending Benedict College it rally have been challenging. I have learned how to be independent and responsibility. Also they will make provisions for you to be able to afford their college. If I had to choose any school this college would actually be my first choice. I really enjoy attending this college.
