Benedictine College Open House

Friday-Saturday, November 9-10, 2018

We invite you and your family to our beautiful Missouri River bluff campus to explore Benedictine College this fall—tour campus, learn about our majors, eat in the dining hall, hear about our Honors and Gregorian Leadership Programs, and meet our great students.

Then, let us treat you to the ultimate “small college-big excitement” atmosphere of a Raven home football game!
