I think that Benedictine College is certainly oneQuite BrightCommunications
I think that Benedictine College is certainly one of the better colleges out there. There's a very welcoming and inclusive faith life whether one is Catholic or not. The monks are amazing people to know. The education quality definitely differs from department to department. Some departments are top of the line while others I question whether they should exist. There's something for everyone and anyone and there are lots of places to shine and not get lost in the crowd. However, apart from the faith life, the campus can be clicky in some organizations like athletics, drama, or engineering but the walls to these clicks are thin and everyone is generally friendly. First impressions really matter when it comes to professors. If you show that you care about the material, the professors will 9 times out of 10 match your enthusiasm and help you but they have no time to waste on students who don't take initiative. IF YOU DONT WANT TO LEARN THEN ITS NOT THEIR JOB TO HELP YOU GET AN A. Its very frustrating as an AB student to see slackers complain to teachers about their grades when the slackers slack off. It's not hard. Actually do the work and you'll pass. As for the town, it is certainly lackluster if you don't get creative. All and all I'm a believer that you get out of college what you put into it no matter where you go. People thrive here if they put in a good effort and a good attitude. The tools are there but you have to use them.

Biggest waste of my time.Bright
Biggest waste of my time. Half of the classes I took I barely remember. There is not a fond memory of Benedictine College. The students are either socially awkward nerds, or dumb as dirt athletes. Many of the students waste their time looking for someone to get married, while many of the jocks go off campus and go to parties to get drunk and take drugs; with many of them having sex with the less christian girls. It is hardly even Catholic, aside from the radical liberal use of that word. The teachers are not helpful and some are hard to get in contact with. The administration are crazy and treat you nice only because you are paying them way too much. Some of the buildings are nice, but that's about it. The location is terrible the food is terrible and the only nearby store is Walmart. There are sometimes weird homeless people who look like drug addicts that wander around the nearby gas stations, which was very questionable and made me feel very unsafe after dark. Overall, the worse college experience I've ever had, and I think the outrageous price for such a terrible experience is criminal at beast, and I wish I had the money to sue them for such a falsely advertised so-called "catholic" college.

The IT Department is completely incompetent.Quite BrightComputer Science
The IT Department is completely incompetent. They are unable to maintain the servers, internet connection and are almost completely inaccessible. The entire program should have them fired and rehire monkeys, who would probably run the program better.

As for the people, they are almost all Catholics. If you are not Catholic your going to have a long 4 years. If you are and want to do anything beside pray... it's gonna be a long 4 years. The teachers however, are brilliant. Dr. James Vanderhyde, Dr. John Romano, Dr. Jamie Blosser are incredibly intelligent and will take time out of there schedule to help you. (Especially Vanderhyde, he is one of the greatest instructors around and very accommodating).
