What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I feel they need to visit the school on a school day. Visit the dorms, and sit in on classes. So they feel comfortable and will feel co mfortable at the particular school. I think they should talk to advisors and get class list and know how hard it will be to graduate in 4 - 5 years. When I was selecting Benedictine I visited 2 other similar size schools. When I walked on BC campus I felt a connection. This was before I was given a Soccer scholarship. Choose by size and size of classes. I believe smaller is the way to go as there is more accountabilty. I would choose Benedictine again and hope my future children will attend.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Benedictine is a community-oriented school that strives to do the absolute best for its students while maintaining their pillars of residential life, being Catholic, being a Benedictine college, and a liberal arts college.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I believe that the first thing parents and students should look for when it comes to finding the right college is that it offers the academic program and other activities that the student is passionate about. Find what you love, and go for it. Also, the size of the school makes a big difference, no matter how good the programs are. Personally, I am not the type to do well in a big state school, which is part of the reason I chose Benedictine; that community aspect helps me to flourish. No matter what school you pick, however, the only way to really make the most of it is to get involved with things you're interested in and try to get to know new people. Everyone has something to offer to the college community, and you've just got to try to find it and push it to the next level. The most important thing is to love where you're at, though. Otherwise, no matter how good the programs, the activities, professors, and students, you're not going to get what you need out of your college experience.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I wouldn't say that there's a type of person who shouldn't attend this school. There's such a wide variety of people and personalities that anyone could find their niche at Benedictine. I will mention that some students with more of a liberal mindset sometimes have a harder time feeling like their opinion matters at this very conservative school, however.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find the school that you feel most comfortable with. The school is going to be your home for the next four years and it's important to go and visit and make sure that you feel comfortable at the school you are attending. If at all possible, take somce AP courses or classes at a community college nearby when you are still in high school, it's good to have a head start when you go into college.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about the school is the social atmosphere, everyone is very warm and friendly and it is very easy to make lasting, meaningful friendships.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit plenty of colleges to gather information, such as campus life, classes, faculty, and the lay out of the college. Your first year there, students should join some extra curricular activities to meet new people.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

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.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about the school is lack of communication between the different school departments and the student body. The school takes our considerations and feelings very lightly.
