3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing differs from building to building, but overall it is good.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletes have a huge role on campus and are just as involved and dedicated as other students. They help the whole school get excited about supporting our teams.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I cannot imagine myself anywhere other than Benedictine College. It is a place that challenges everyone to be the best versions of themselves. We have great school pride, and our community is truly like family.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors at BC are great and they truly care about the education we are receiving. Class sizes are very small and personal, and the professors are very knowledgeable about the subjects they teach.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A liberal arts degree is a good thing to have when looking for jobs because it shows that you are a well rounded individual. Benedictine does have a very good alumni network, with many alumni in high ranking corporate positions in a variety of companies. However, it isn't very easy to find internships or entry level jobs during the school year because Atchison is a small town in the middle of nowhere. It's about a 30-45 minute drive to Kansas City, where there are some prospects, but that isn't an easy commitment to make.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel really safe on campus and I'm fine walking across campus alone at night. There have been a couple lockdowns due to a shooting in town and a threat, but the res life staff did a good job to make sure we were safe, and the issues were resolved quickly.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: For the most part you are required to live on campus since we are a residential college. I feel like there are a decent amount of living options available, but only if room draw works in your favor. Some of the buildings are a little old and run down, but nothing you can't live with (except the flooding in first floor McDonald). The sense of community you get from living on campus is great and I would take that over a nice off campus apartment any day (not that they have those in Atchison).

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Students are fairly supportive of athletics, but the school makes a much bigger deal of them. I feel like the recruited athletes get a little more special treatment and scholarship money than they should, especially with how small the school is. There is almost a division between some of the athletes and the rest of the students because a few of the athletes are only there because of their scholarships, and not because they are interested in what the school has to offer as a Catholic liberal arts institution.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Benedictine! Most of the students, faculty, and staff are very friendly and really care about you as a person. The professors push students to learn and critically think about things.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I would definitely recommend living on campus at least one year for the experience of community, which includes fun, faith, and scholarship. If you're in a nice dorm with a good roommate and most of the other residents are solid, then you will have a good experience. I lived in the dorm last year and it was good because I became independent, was able to participate in the activities sponsored by the Resident Assistants (RAs), and become part of a great community of girls! Now I would like to have my family living close so that I could live with them and commute because I love my family and it would be cheaper. But that not being the case, I'm looking forward to being back in the dorm, building new friendships and enjoying fun, faith, and scholarship with other girls my age. Our RAs were always helpful and cared about us.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I know that athletics is a big part of Benedictine College but I'm not involved in them so I don't have details on the quality of them or the services involved. I do know that our teams are good and we did really well in football and soccer this past school year (2015-16). I do attend the football games regularly and fan support is strong, the students get really excited and cheer strongly. And we pray for our teams while they are away and we do care about how we're doing.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would rate Benedictine College in Atchison, KS. as a great school because of the experience I've had with my professors and the Catholic opportunities on campus. My professors are always willing and eager to help me if I have a problem and they care about my long-term career goals and offer helpful advice in obtaining them. The best part about Benedictine are the opportunities/means offered to grow in my Catholic Faith. Having a chapel in my dorm where I can stop in and visit Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament frequently throughout the day is really great, it has really helped me grow in love with Him and strengthened my faith. Also, the multiple opportunities offered to attend Holy Mass is great because it enables me to go every day because I can always work my schedule around a Mass time.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had a wonderful experience with my professors they were great and i learned so much from them i would have never learned. I really liked all my classes i took especially my music classes i had the most fun in those because i love to sing and i love the music program alot its absolutely amazing.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would say the students careers have gone up there is a lot of students i have meet studying the same thing. There is a lot of alumni who work on campus and are very helpful when you need something. There are lots of ways on campus to intern for jobs at different places out side of college life.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel like the safety on campus is tight we have a security guard who goes around very night and makes sure everyone is safe. When there comes a problem on campus like criminals running around there security are right there to make sure we are all safe and out of harm.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I would say i really liked the dorms on campus especially living in them it was great the girls were one big family to me i never felt home sick and i really liked how we had a chapel in the basement the best thing ever and i also liked how there was daily mass offered in the chapel everyday too. The cost of the dorms is not to bad its a decent amount but overal the dorm life was the best life i could of asked for as a freshmen.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: There are a lot of Geeks at my school because the classes are some what hard and there are a lot of students who spend there days studying all day and so they come out of college super smart. Geek life is the same as normal life on campus i would say. There is not much difference between geek life and non geek life on campus. The housing is for everyone on campus and off campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The athletics are fun to be around and good people. There team performance is outstanding and when they play they are wonderful to watch and also to be in the sport is a lot of Faith and fun. The school spirit is big when it comes to some of our big games of that season.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I had an amazing year i learned alot from all my classes and it was so worth going to school. I would say it was my dream college and one i would never forget the rest of my life. I really liked the music at the school it was so awesome and all my friends i made through different events and all. Its unique because its a liberal arts Catholic College. Because of all the friends i made and how friendly people were and and how fun the classes were.
