I knew when I first walked on campus that this was the place for me. No other school I had visited felt like it was where I belonged. I really love BC because of the small class sizes, availability of the professors, and community. The school also does a fantastic job offering students opportunities to grow in their faith. I am enjoying my time here at Benedictine College.
I am in love with my school, and it was a great choice for me. Benedictine is not just a place to learn, though you definitely will, but also a place to be formed. The faith life is spectacular, the professors are phenomenal, and the community is second to none.
Benedictine is my home. So cliche I know, but it is truly such an amazing college. I love my majors (sociology and Spanish), my professors, my friends, all the opportunities available to me. That being said, it is not for everyone. The Catholic culture is very present and influential, which I personally like since I am Catholic, but I would imagine it to be hard for someone who is not Catholic. Everyone is definitely respectful towards each other, regardless of religion, race, and whatever else. A campus visit is a must to make sure you have a good vibe from the place because if you don't, it is not worth it to attend.
Benedictine College is well known for its community atmosphere. Everywhere you look there are awesome people that care for you and your well-being. As with any college, there are downsides to it. At Benedictine, you are restricted to the College and the town. The only way to go elsewhere is drive 30 minutes away. Yet, if you enjoy making life-long friends and growing in your Catholic Faith then Benedictine is the way to go!

The advice I would give to myself is to be more decisive. Decide what you want to do with your life and just do it instead of waiting. Even if you decide later on in your college career that it isn't what you really want to do it is a start and you can always change your mind. If you have some college it is better than having no college to many employers and will therefore help you obtain a higher paying job. College life is hard but it is easier to obtain an education when you do not have a family yet, as I do. If I had gone to school before having children and before the economy had gone downhill I wouldn't be so worried about paying for it now. Being decisive will help in all areas of life, not just deciding what to go to college for.
I brag about our faithfilled and friendfilled community that extends not only past the boundaries of our college and our town but throughout the rest of the United States and the World. I also tell everyone about the small classrooms and large particiaption of students and faculty at the numerous activities held on our campus.
Benedictine College is faith-filled, fun, academic oriented, encouraging, and a fun, small community!
My school is best known for its faith. It is a Benedictine school and there are monks that live on campus. There are many opportunities for students to engage and learn more about their faith.
There are some things I wish I had known before I came to Benedictine College. I wish I had known more about the school, their extracurricular activities, academics, and campus living, before I arrived at this new college.
They refer to it as the "BC Bubble." Because there are less than 2,000 students it is really easy to get to know a lot of your classmates and everyone is very friendly. Most students are Catholic (about 85%).
Unlike many other schools, Benedictine College is a faith centered campus. The Catholic faith is a part of the daily lives of students and educators at Benedictine College, both in and outside of the classroom. This commonality in beliefs acts as a foundation for strong connections and bonds between every individual on the Benedictine College campus. Further, Benedictine College’s strong emphasis on the Catholic faith allows students to be educated not only in their intended major, but also on how to intertwine their education and beliefs in order to carry their Catholic faith into everyday living.
This is a catholic, liberal arts, private school in an old, small town. So if you want a catholic liberal arts education, and don't mind living where the biggest store is a Walmart, then this is the place for you! And since it is a private school, it is smaller than a lot of other college which is nice is you want to get to know a lot of the people there!
I think that the best thing about my school is that it is so small that I am able to make great friends and have fun but still be able to focus on my academics. My friends support and help me in my academics and so do my teachers, which in a College or University can be rare.
The worst thing is probably the fact that atchison is just a small town so there isnt much to do while off campus.
The most frustrating part is the fact that it is like a small town (since it is a small school), and most everyone knows your business.
Professors really help you out. They have office hours where you can visit them and ask them questions.

Choosing Benedictine College (BC) as been the best education choice of my life; BC is a place where students can grow in a community of faith while taking a liberal arts education. BC is small and friendly, and the professors really care about their students.
I think people stereotype us because of our Catholic population, but in reality we aren't all that different. We are loud and like to have fun, cram for finals, and complain about the food; we just change it up a bit by adding God into our education.
