Become a Prayer Companion to a service immersion participant

The Prayer Companion Role involves praying for the students while they are on the Service Immersion Experience, sending them a message of support and encouragement, attending the last group of meeting prior to the trip and attending the Sunday evening send-off Mass with the students. If interested, please contact Carrie Roberts at croberts@ben.edu no later than March 1.

Help a deserving student attend Model UN in New York


Students in the Model United Nations class are conducting a fundraiser to coincide with the program's 50th anniversary of sending representatives to the National Model UN Conference in New York. The team is selling $20 raffle tickets for a chance to win 24 bottles of wine (a mix of reds and whites to be selected later, all in the $15-plus range). An additional two cases will be raffled off for every 200 tickets sold. You must be 21 years or older to win. The drawing will be held during Model UN's special event on March 17 featuring guest speakers from The Abolition Institute on the effort to end slavery in Mauritania. Every dollar raised goes to the Diplomacy in Action Award fund, which supports students, based on need, by covering their airfare and incidentals for the weeklong trip. Model UN is an invaluable experience that helps students develop leadership, public speaking and negotiating skills. The Model UN program at Benedictine has built a reputation for excellence. However, more and more students who wish to take part find it challenging financially to do so. This is an opportunity to help those students. Students in the class are selling tickets, or they may be purchased from Joel Ostrow either by cash or via PayPal.  For more information or for raffle tickets, contact Joel Ostrow at bumodelun50@gmail.com or call (630) 829-6470.

More information about The Abolition Institute can be found at www.StoppingSlavery.org. For more information about the event, contact Joel Ostrow at jostrow@ben.edu or call (630) 829-6470.

Eagles soar into national spotlight with No. 2 ranking in D3hoops.com poll

Benedictine, currently 24-0, was ranked No. 2 in the nation in last week's D3hoops.com poll and No. 1 in the NCAA Division III Central Region. Ironically, the team ranked behind Benedictine at No. 2 in the NCAA regional poll is Augustana, which is ranked No. 1 in the D3hoops.com national poll. The Eagles are averaging 87 points per game and are outscoring their opponents by nearly 19 points per contest. They have won road games at No. 9 Elmhurst (19-3) and No. 18 North Central (16-6), and handled poll vote-getter and NACC conference rival Aurora (17-4) twice, 90-62 at home and 93-70 at Aurora. Balance has been a key to Benedictine's success. The Eagles have five players scoring in double figures, led by 6-3 junior Michael Blaszczyk, a Naperville Central graduate and Accounting major who averages14.1 points per game. Not far behind are 6-2 junior guard Tahron Harvey (Country Club Hills, Ill./Glenbard East/Communication Arts) at 13.7 points per game and 6-9 senior Luke Johnson (Naperville, Ill./Wheaton Academy/Communication Arts) at 13.1 points and 10.6 rebounds per game. Saturday's 88-54 victory over Edgewood allowed the Eagles to break the record for most wins in a season. The 1990-91 team won 23 games and reached the national quarterfinals before losing to eventual champion Wisconsin-Platteville.
