Top of the evenin’ to you from Student Health Services. Spring break is around the corner and we have a couple of reminders.
March is the halfway point in the semester and our students are well into classes and co-curricular activities. On February 14th we celebrated Ash Wednesday and began our Christian Lenten journey. Students, faculty and staff were selected to reflect on provided readings from the Bible for each day during Lent. We then compiled these reflections into our own BenU Lenten Reflection book. It has been a great tool to journey closer to Christ through the wisdom shared by the BenU community. The Lenten Reflection book will carry us through until Easter, on April 1st. One of our favorite interfaith events happened in February – Couch Week! Students had the opportunity to sit on a couch in the busiest section of campus and simply talk with one another about faith. This program has helped our students understand one another more, build bridge across divides, and share about their own faith traditions. Lastly, looking ahead for the rest of the semester, we will continue to prepare for S.T.E.P. (Serving Together Engaging our Purpose) to Bolivia. It is our two and half week service experience to Sucre, Bolivia. This year Campus Ministry is taking 12 BenU students with the Diocese of Joliet. Students will spend time serving at a soup kitchen, three different daycares and a hospital. We are looking forward to continually walking with our students in their faith journey.

Registration season is upon us as summer registration begins March 1st and fall registration will begin for students with senior standing on Tuesday April 3rd. In preparation for registration, is important that students take care of any holds they may have on their student account, as a hold will prevent registration from occurring. Please see below for the different types of holds students encounter, and where students can go for assistance:
Please note that students must fill out a Release of Confidential Information Form for any academic or financial information to be disclosed to parents.
We also encourage students to meet with their professors for office hours, the peer tutoring center for tutoring (schedule can be found at www.ben.edu/ace) and with our Math, Writing or Science specialists for tutoring assistance.
Our advising staff is always available to assist students with any questions or concerns that students may have. Please don’t hesitate to visit www.ben.edu/advising or contact us at (630) 829-1120 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
