Social life outside of clubs, sports, etc.Super BrilliantBiology
Social life outside of clubs, sports, etc. is fairly absent. It is a partial commuter school, so not much goes on if you do not live on campus (even so it's still a fairly small private school - not many parties) near downtown Naperville, so if you're 21 bars aren't bad. Great school especially if you're a science major. Labs are fairly intensive so they give you well sculpted practical skills.

Update: I am being contacted by the IRS because Benedictine screwed up my 1098T for 2012. It never ends with this school....

Question
Honestly, I graduated in 1993 and Benedictine UniversitySociology
Honestly, I graduated in 1993 and Benedictine University was all about the student and making sure each and every student reached their full potential. Unfortunately, my daughter is a freshman at BU and it is the fastest growing campus in the US and that is certainly not a good thing. They don't care about the students, they care about numbers. My daughter graduated valedictorian from high school and choose BU because of the personal experience I had with the instructors there. She took English 104 and the instructor was anything but helpful, took months to return emails and or phone calls. I personally left him 3 phone calls (none of which were returned) voicing concerns about him being MIA for his students. I voiced concerns to administration and all concerns fall on deaf ears. The worst part is the instructor made very inappropriate comments throughout the entire semester and the school has yet to apologize. Best advice I can give you, is find a school that is going to put you first, after all you are paying thousands of dollars for an education. you are the customer. Just know what you are getting into.
