What our students say...


Ismail Ahmad, Class of 2019

Physics (Biophysics concentration) and minor in Math

"I chose Benedictine’s College of Science because I was wanted to go to a University that was close to home and knew that Benedictine University had a solid premedical track record. The teachers are always available and frequently show interest in their students' interests and future goals. Whenever possible, the teachers I have had have tried to accommodate my interests in the curriculum.
