Getting to Campus

Benedictine College is located in historic Atchison, Kansas, a small town picturesquely situated in the hills beside the Missouri River in northeast Kansas. With a population just under 11,000, the city offers the much-sought qualities of small-town life, but is close enough to the metropolitan areas of Kansas City, Topeka, and St. Joseph to offer big-city amenities.

Atchison presents a surprising number of entertainment opportunities – from community theatre, concerts, and art festivals to sports and recreation. With over 20 sites on the National Register of Historic Places, Atchison reveals its rich historic legacy through its impressive Victorian-era architecture and with five museums that showcase its diverse art, history, railroad heritage, and the Amelia Earhart birthplace.
