I attended the branch off of BenU at the Mesa campus in Arizona. Because we have such a small community, it is very easy to build a good relationship with the staff and professors who represent Benedictine. Overall, my experience has been great with many Professors whom I can say want to see me succeed.

Benedictine University implies its mission upon religious beliefs and is one of the reasons that I choose the college as my choice to pursue my MPH. However, after working with the admission and financial aid departments I discovered that those departments are based upon a more demonic assertion rather than a religious belief.
Indeed, if the admission and financial aid departments are demons than the classes must be taught by no other thing but Satan. Therefore, I would not attend Benedictine University because it has not affiliated itself with any religious intent and has asserted unwanted hate and confusion within a religious organization.
I love it. It's a small, close-knit community, where you have so much to do. Benedictine University is like a big family. Professors are mostly available, we have decently small class sizes, and people here care for one another. Looking back, I wouldn't have chosen another place to go for college.
Small school, easy to get around... The choice of classes is a bit limiting. There is not much around the campus to walk to and the food is sub-par.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Benedictine University is 100%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
The summer of my high school graduation was very different from any other summer in my life. Normally, I would have been excited about taking a trip to Puerto Rico to visit my grandparents. But this summer was different. After taking off my graduation cap, I immediately started packing for my trip to Florida. And there were no plans for Disney World this time. I was preparing for college. And I was the first in my family to do so.
Now, six years later, I'm planning to re-attend. I can't say the falling economy has been kind to me. Even with an A.S., I've found it difficult to find a job no matter where I go. Frustrating it may be, I can only imagine how I would have felt if I only had my high school diploma. It's tough for everyone right now. And the only way to stay on top is to further my education.
It's easy to wait for things to get better. But my education has opened up so many doors for me in the past. College taught me that it's better to take action than to wait.
Friendly, diverse and very approachable.
The kind of person that should attend Benedictine University should be someone who is dedicated to themself and wants to go further then a high school diploma.
My school is very science orientated with difficult classes and teachers with high expectations because several students attending here want to go into the medical field.
There campus and enivorment is amazing everybody there are so friendly it's also close to home and family are able to interact with me
to stay proactive and not reactive...start with a really good start, it'll help you a lot during your last years of college
There are no recreational areas for students to just relax.There is no wifi available, and the meals on campus are not the best around. There is no transporational avaible for studnets who do not own cars for them to go to stores or downtown for food.
The school has an excellent academic reputation for health sciences, which is the field of study I chose. I feel I received an excellent undergraduate education, and was well prepared for graduate school.
The worst thing about this school is its size. If you really like the small-school atmosphere, this school is perfect for you. If you prefer larger campuses and larger class sizes, this school might not be right for you.
If you're not a Science major, and you're more into a bigger school, don't go here.
The stereotype may be that since Benedictine is a Catholic University, that the student body is primarily Catholic and there is little tolerance for other religions. This stereotype is not accurate, there are students from various religious backgrounds and its also a very ethnically diverse.
My experience at Benedictine University has been a unique journey of learning through discovery, quality academics, and strong community.
I am a Master of Public Health student who will be graduating in the spring. At first, I wasn’t sure if an online program would be able to meet my needs because I tend to learn best hands on. However, I soon found out that the online program and the onsite campus experience are both outstanding. At Benedictine University I was challenged by the courses, engaged by the discussions, and actively learned about my field of study. Some courses required group projects which allowed me real world experience on how to collaborate with different perspectives to achieve a final goal. I also have gained invaluable experience on conducting presentations using multi-media, project management, and coordinating wellness events.
I am currently working as Medical Technologist, and I am applying for jobs right now that directly pertain to my field of study in public health using the Benedictine Career website. This website is a wonderful resource available to BU students where companies can post jobs for students in all Majors. There is no need to stress about finding a job after graduating, because the career placement center is very helpful.
With the rising costs of education, deciding how to pay for school is an important decision. Fortunately, BU has several ways to assist students with paying for college through competitive scholarships, financial aid assistance, and payment plan options through Sallie Mae.
Many students, including myself have faced challenges at BU. I would say the biggest challenge is keeping up with the intense workload in some courses. What has worked well for me is to openly communicate with my professor about any confusion or if I need help. Also, students should be prepared to commit to several hours per week of study, reading, and writing (depending on whether full-time or part-time).
Lessons for Life
Not only do I feel that Benedictine has me academically prepared to enter the field of Public Health, but I feel the need to make a positive impact on the community. I am a person who places great importance on public service. I am a volunteer for St. James Missionary Baptist Church, Salvation Army, and as a member of Healthy Quest at work. I take great pride in helping others and would like to pass on the life lessons that I’ve learned at Benedictine to others.
Benedictine is a university where any student will feel proud to be a part of—it stands for integrity, uniqueness, and success. There are supportive faculty members that genuinely want me to succeed as well as driven students who were not only my classmates but became my friends. As I reflect on my challenges and triumphs as a student, I am so glad that I made the right choice!
Off campus there a various opportunities to volunteer and give back to the community at local churches, hospitals, and other organizations.
