3 College Senior

Local Area: My school's location is spacious and scenic. To get to any attractions or shopping you must have a vehicle. There is nothing within walking distance except the monastery and the high school.

3 College Senior

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

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Benedictine University is located in Lisle, Illinois. It surrounded by booming towns such as Naperville and Oakbook. It is also merely a 40 minute drive from Chicago. There are many places where students can find delicious food, fashionable shopping malls, recreational events like marathons, cultural experiences like museums, and more. You can walk, drive, or take a train to places, depending on where you want to go or what you want to do. Throughout my time at Benedictine, I have gone out to eat for lunch and dinner with friends, never failing to find a great place to enjoy a good time. It's also easy to find something to do during a weekend or break.

3 College Junior

Local Area: The school itself is somewhat in a remote area, you have to drive at least twenty minutes to get to downtown Naperville where you can do a little shopping most mostly eat and that's where most of the night life goes on in the bars. The campus has of course areas to play all sorts of sports whether outside or in the rice center.
