Weather has played havoc with Tuesday's (April 1)athletics events for Benedictine University. No fooling! Tuesday's home non-conference baseball game versus the University of Chicago has already been cancelled due to field conditions. No new date has been announced for that contest. The Northern Athletics Conference softball doubleheader scheduled at Rockford College for tomorrow has been postponed until Wednesday, April 9 at 3:00 p.m.


Benedictine University is an independent Roman Catholic institution located in Lisle, Illinois just 25 miles west of Chicago. Founded in 1887, Benedictine provides 56 undergraduate majors, 16 graduate and four doctorate programs. The Chronicle of Higher Education recently ranked Benedictine University as the seventh fastest-growing campus among private nonprofit master’s universities, and Forbes magazine named Benedictine among the top 20 percent of America’s colleges for 2011. Benedictine University’s Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program is listed by Crain’s Chicago Business as the fourth largest in the Chicago area in 2011.
