Greeting:

I will never forget my first visit to Benedictine College’s campus. After spending the day walking around campus, meeting professors, and visiting with students I was completely hooked! I knew this was the college where I was meant to be. Benedictine College is an incredible institution that has allowed me to grow in so many ways I never thought were possible. I was able to develop lifelong friendships, expand my educational experience, and strengthen my faith. Benedictine has so much to offer, and I am grateful that I am representing one of the greatest colleges in America. I cannot wait to work with all of our future Ravens!

Greeting:

Hi!  I am recent BC grad from the class of 2011, and I am so excited to be working in the Office of Admission!  After a long college search, I ended up at Benedictine where I made incredible friendships, traveled the world, and had the experience of a lifetime.  I loved the liberal arts education because I was able to study so many things that interest me while getting my degree in art.  Outside the classroom, I had so much fun on campus and around Atchison, was able to participate in programs I am passionate about, and found new facets of my faith life.  I can’t wait to tell you more about my experiences at the college I love and help you make a decision for the next adventure in your life!

Greeting:

Throughout my college career, I grew so much as a person and it’s truly because of the friendships, lessons, experiences and opportunities that Benedictine was able to offer me.   It was a blessing to have been able to attend a college that not just talks about, but shows you a community that cares for you personally and desires you to exceed to the highest possible level you can.  I can guarantee you that you are not going to get that passion at any other college or university.  I am beyond ecstatic that I might get to help you become a member of the Benedictine community.  

 

As a recent graduate, I can attest how scary and exciting new adventures can be.  Here at Benedictine College, we strive to help make the experience nothing but joyful and memorable for you.  We are honored to have such amazing students at our school.

Greeting:

Hello! I am a brand new graduate from the Class of 2017 and I am so excited to be working for my now Alma Mater!

 

On my first visit to Benedictine, I set foot on campus and knew this was the place I wanted to call home for the next four years (and now even more)! Over my four years I grew in countless ways. I grew in the classroom where I was challenged by my professors to excel not only in my schoolwork but also in my faith, friendships and as an individual. I grew in my leadership abilities where I was honored to hold many leadership positions working closely with Benedictine faculty and staff members. 

 

Benedictine is a place that I will always call home. I look forward to helping future Ravens call this place their new home as well.

Greeting:

Hi! I’m so excited to be an Admission Counselor at one of America’s best Catholic colleges! My junior year I decided to transfer to Benedictine College, and I can honestly say it was the best decision I could have ever made. During my time here at BC, I was constantly challenged to grow not only academically, but also grow in my friendships and in my faith life as well. I was taken away by how amazing the community is here, and how much I felt at home as a transfer student beginning my junior year.

 

I love telling people about my experience here at Benedictine, and will always consider BC my home away from home. I hope you come visit Benedictine to see for yourself how wonderful this place truly is, and maybe even become part of the Raven family!

Greeting:
From the first visit on this campus, I knew Benedictine College was the place for me. I was given opportunities here that very few colleges can offer. Benedictine let me continue soccer, get a great education, study abroad in France, and prepared me for life after college. I even met my husband here and now we have made Atchison and Benedictine our home. I am blessed to be given the opportunity to work for the place I love. I hope to see you on campus and even more see you become a Raven!

Greeting:
Benedictine College has been a part of my family for over 30 years, with my mom and three of my aunts graduating as Ravens. As a recent alumnus, I love sharing stories about Benedictine to potential students and their families. Benedictine College gave me a wonderful education, awesome friendships and the opportunity to study in Ireland for a semester. The Benedictine community will embrace you no matter where you are from.

I hope you take the opportunity to visit campus and meet all the amazing people here at Benedictine College.  Your experience will help shape you for the rest of your life. Go Ravens!
