Applied Student Day Offers Peek Into Life at BenU

May 31, 2013

Mesa, Arizona ~ Benedictine University at Mesa will hold its next “Applied Student Day” for freshmen on Saturday, June 15 at 10:00 a.m. at the Phoenix Marriott Mesa at 200 N. Centennial Way in downtown Mesa.

Applied Student Day is for students who are ready to take the next step in their college experience or are still deciding if BenU at Mesa is the right fit for them. Students can talk with other incoming students, meet with academic advisors to create their schedule and attend a mock “lecture-free” class similar to what they will experience as an enrolled student.

Students who attend an Applied Student Day and register as a full-time student by September 3 will receive an iPad mini in celebration of Benedictine University at Mesa’s inaugural class.

Benedictine University became one of the fastest growing colleges in the country by providing students individual attention – academic advising, faculty availability, career counseling – that helps students to defy limitations and enjoy a successful college experience.
The low student-to-teacher ratios, lecture-free classes, next generation learning methods, detailed financial aid assistance and encouraging a life lived in balance – including service to others – are ways Benedictine makes college work for students during and after graduation. The University also makes transferring quick and easy to help students move forward with earning their degrees.
