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

jabrea

I wish i'd known more about the history of the building.

Janet

That no matter what others think or say that everyone in the school knows someone. That is definitely not true. Everyone will feel out of place in the beginning of the school year because mostly everyone is trying to get to know each other, but through the course of your first year at Benedictine University you will get eventually into a comfortable position that you will begin to feel that Benedictine is definitely your second home away from home.

Laura

How small it is

Kevin

The atmosphere, parking information, sports information (teams stick together on campus).

Miriam

I wish I had known that although there are more commuters that students who live on campus, the residents seem to have a community within the Benedictine community.

Sarah

Before I began attending Benedictine, I wish I knew that it was a lot easier to make friends if you lived on campus. I can be a bit shy sometimes, and I think that if I lived on campus, it would not only have been a more enjoyable experience, butI would have made friends much faster. Even though in the beginning I sometimes felt left out, I'm glad I was able to meet so many diverse and interesting people, many of whom I am good friends with today.

Reema

I wish I knew more about the programs offered at my college, such as the 6 years pharamacy program combined with Midwestern University.

Stephany

I wish I would have known that there weren't many graduate programs offered for psychology.

JOHN

Anna

How hard it was going to be to transition from high school. the work load is enormous. But i love it. I would not change benedictine for anything.

Rene

nothing

Alexandrea

This school is very prominent in the medical fields. Most the people who go here are somewhat wealthy, but very driven. Its a tough competition when you are an average student and don't want to feel belittled and dumb around others.

Dulce

I wish I had known that most people go home on weekends. It's very quiet around the campus on weekends, and there isn't much to do. I also wish I had known how hard it is to get an on-campus apartment.
