4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Not a huge issue with drugs on campus. It's college, so it happens. But in general it is a drug-free campus. We're in Kansas, not Colorado.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors generally care about the students, and because the typical class is around 20-25 students it is easy to gain meaningful access to the teachers. Since it is a liberal arts school, there are a wide variety of classes and courses you can take. Depending on the major and professor, courses can be easy or difficult. It's best just to ask students or look at RateMyProfessor.com.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: BC does need to do a better job of job placement for graduating students.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Benedictine is a very safe campus. Even though it has grown, it has also updated its social media and text message-based alert systems, and has hired more security staff.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Housing is great depending on where you live. The freshman men's dorms are crappy but that's par for the course at any school. McDonald Hall for sophomore girls is old and St. Joe's Hall for men is old as well. However, the other 12 or so dorms are all new and very well-kept up. They have all the modern amenities and some even look like fancy hotels. Overall, housing is very good at BC. If you don't like the prices, or just want more freedom, you can always apply for off-campus housing and deal with a landlord yourself.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think the best aspect is that Benedictine is part of a community. There are definitely different groups on campus but in general it is small enough that it feels like a community. It's unique because it is big enough to have separate groups of friends, but at the same time there's lots of overlap. There's always a variety of school events on the weekend, and if you like to drink and party you can go to off campus house to do so.

4 College Senior

Athletics: BC has a lot of school spirit. They do a pretty good job of reminding the average student when games are and what times. School spirit can be very high, especially if it's a big game or versus a big rival (Baker U comes to mind). Teams are very average. A few have made the national tournament recently. Women's bball got to the final four this year (2016).

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus feels extremely safe and security is constantly monitoring it.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes and professors are of the highest quality.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Studying liberal arts makes one better qualified for any job.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are all good quality but the cost is a little high. There seems to be a very close knit community among members of a dorm.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I really haven't participated in any varsity or intermural sports so I cannot fully answer this question. However there seems to be great school spirit.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are interesting, rewarding,and better than I ever expected . The professors are all wonderful,. I have met some of the most amazing, inspiring, and strongly Catholic people attending the college. I also love all of the on campus activities and events. Overall I would highly recommend this college to anyone. The only negative thing I could say about the college is that I strongly disagree with their dorm visitation policy (allowing members of the opposite sex in rooms until midnight with the door closed) and think that it is a danger to the faith which is in so many ways promoted, respected, and lived on the campus.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security takes forever to respond. Once a group of girls was made late to a mandatory conference because it took security 45 minutes to come jump a car.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of the professors I have encountered seem willing to help their students, but some are not very helpful.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are not many programs in the country that offer a Theater Arts Management degree. I believe it will be very easy for me to find a job after college.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the upperclassmen dorms are so far away from where my classes are and that is a hassle.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports seems to take over all of the advertised events on campus, when in fact, there are many other non-athletic events going on that no one knows about.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school has a huge staircase that connects the academic buildings with the dorms that sucks.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: The security guards and faculty would bust you for not combing your hair if it were illegal.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Teachers all expect you to consider their class the most important and thats annoying when you are taking Fluid Mechanics and History at the same time.......one is way more important to my life than the other.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are a lot of growing job opportunities, however there are a lot of liberal arts majors who wouldnt get jobs regardless of where they went to school

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The residences are fine but cost 4-5 times what an apartment lease with utilities would cost in Atchison. Also RAs are people not looking out for wellbeing, but looking to ruin peoples lives. Literally so much better people would be RAs at this school if they let the RAs go out on the nights they dont work.

Athletics: Trying to make a small Catholic school a sports powerhouse is unrealistic.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The requirements for getting offcampus are stupid, meal plans are not worth your money, and tuition keeps going up a ton every year. Courses are difficult and professors require a lot. The community is small but comprised of very solid people. Now if only the joke of a football program would stop taking all the money and give some of the scholarship money they give to the 200 freshmen they recruit every year to students who have more potential for success, then we would be cooking with gas.
