4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Saint Ben's. Again, the only thing that is not completely excellent is the people. The students who go there tend to be brought up very wealthy and lack understanding of real world problems as well as diversity.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a huge network of connections to help students find jobs/internships/shadowing opportunities. There are always recruiters on campus and there are multiple programs that set you up for future connections and experience.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I had a friend who was sexually assaulted on campus this year and our school was very active in the case and were not tolerant of the assaulter, as it should be. He was expelled and no longer is able to set foot on our campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are much bigger than other schools but they are incredibly expensive for rooms that are not updated and tend to be very, very old.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone is very welcoming of new students when someone wants to learn to play something. The facilities are awesome and offer a variety of activities to participate in and many group exercise classes are student taught.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The only problem with this school is that most of the kids who attend it are very privileged and can become cliquy if you did not grow up in the same way that they did or if you don't have very much money. However, the campus is beautiful and the profs are wonderful along with the classes that they teach. Great success come out of Saint Ben's.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It is pretty safe in here, except there may be two or three events reported in each semester.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am happy to be a part in this school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities for students, just don't hesitate to ask and remember to attend all activities you are interested in, because it really helps.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: People are nice to each other and it is pretty easy to make new friends.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In general, professors are very nice and helpful, and that is really good for my study. Except study, there are also many activities that students can participate in, and this enrich my college life.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. Security on campus is always around and working.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've had mixed experiences with professors. Some have been very thorough and helpful, others have been very scattered and disorganized with their lesson plans, and others have been hostile and demeaning.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Career services is helpful and a lot of emphasis is placed on networking with alumnae.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing is nice. There are a lot of options to choose from, if you receive a good lottery number for choosing. The residential life rules are strict, though. No males quests are allowed to stay in the female dorms past specific hours (and vice versa) and they are never permitted to stay overnight in any of the dorms or apartments. It's a very outdated, yet upheld rule.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Football is a big deal but other than that, no one pays attention to sports.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I was expecting something other than what this school has offered. It's in a small town, with a Catholic influence, and the rules that follow along these upheld "Benedictine Values" are hindering to the enjoyment of being a 20 year old experiencing life in college. If you are not Catholic, I would highly recommend that you do not attend this institution. Go somewhere else and have more fun.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus, and our on campus security is very helpful and available to students when needed.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the small class sizes, and awesome professors. Profs here really care about your success, and are available outside of class for whatever you may need. Also, besides the small class sizes allowing profs to get to k now you, it also makes it easy to create strong bonds with your classmates. Personally, the people I've met in my major classes have become some of my closest friends.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The Bennie Johnnie Network is amazing. In our Career Services offices, we have something called the "Cane Files" which is a database with contact information of Bennie/Johnnie alum who are willing to network with and help graduates trying to find a job or internship.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: On campus housing is great, and really brings people together! Great options for freshman through senior class.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics really bring our community together. Johnnie football in particular is a big deal at CSB/SJU! We have a gorgous stadium where students, alum, family and friends gather to cheer on the Johnnies!

Additionally, students enjoy attending other sporting events such as hockey and basketball.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am so happy at CSB/SJU. The small size and Benedictine background makes for two schools with a strong sense of community and awesome culture all its own. Ever since my first day as a freshman, I have felt welcomed and at home on both campuses. I truly cannot say enough about these schools! My two favorite experiences so far have been being an elementary education major, and studying abroad for a semester in Greece and Italy. Being a part of the elementary education major is truly like belonging to a family on campus. Everyone is actively working toward the same goal. It's so rewarding to attend classes and spend time with people of a shared passion, and I'm sure other majors have simialr experiences. Because of the small class sizes, you really bond with people in the same field as you. Also, CSB/SJU has award winning study abroad programs, with opportunities in 17 different countries around the world. I had the amazing experience of going on the Greco-Roman trip, which was truly life changing.

Overall, I would not want to go to school anywhere else! The campuses are gorgeous, the people are friendly, and the academics and extracurriculars are wide-spread.

Party Scene: Its what you make it, you can pretty much find stuff to do within all scopes. Drinking, other activities, underaged nightlife, etc. Transportation is the easiest because of the Link Bus that runs between campuses!

4 College Junior

Party Scene: I have been to some parties, but I don't go to a ton. I think they are really fun to go to, but there are other things to do as well!

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students who attend CSB and SJU love it. Throughout the academic year, students experience so much culture, which allows them to grow not only intellectually, but also with a more global perspective. CSB/SJU impacts students' lives because the people are so nice, the education is great, and the professors are easily reachable and understanding. But most importantly are the friendships students develop along the way. What many students love the most is the school spirit and the fact that the faculty likes to get involved in events, as well. It gives students the impression of a community and family.

At first, campus can seem overwhelming, but as the year goes on and students get adjusted to life in college, they get the opportunity to learn and experience appreciating life more. CSB/SJU students are very intelligent and gifted in the academic field as well as on the sports field. Both schools push students every day, inside and outside of the classroom, to want something better in life and to excel in whatever path life guides them on. If students had the chance to pick another school, many wouldn’t because why risk something that is already excellent? CSB and SJU prepare students for life after college. Most students who graduate from CSB/SJU tend to go to grad or medical school. Also, most students who graduate tend to find jobs easily.
