Why choose Benedictine?

Enrolling at a Benedictine institution gives students an opportunity to attain a valuable education while engaging in the Benedictine traditions. 

The communities that make up the Association of Benedictine Colleges and Universities are dedicated to fostering  student growth through experiences that will get them out of their comfort zone.

COMMITMENT

In their work the member and sponsoring institutions of the Association of Benedictine Colleges and Universities seek to share and concretize the Gospel values as interpreted by Saint Benedict in the Rule:

 

1. The primacy of God and the things of God

2. Reverent listening for the varied ways in which God is revealed

3. The formation of community built on respect for individual persons who are each regarded as Christ himself

4. The development of a profound awareness of the meaning of one's existence

5. The exercise of good stewardship

Attending a Benedictine college has not only made me a better student, but ultimately a better person."
