Send Liliana an Email
Liliana Ascencio Earned a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Minor in Family and Child Studies from Northern Illinois University In 2014. She plans on commencing a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology in January of 2016 at Benedictine University.

Benedictine University isn’t only a great University to attend, but a great University to work for. I felt very welcomed by everyone the first day I started working at Ben and, I want our students to feel the exact same way when they attend our campus. It is my ultimate goal to make sure the students receive an exceptional educational experience here at Benedictine.

“I would advise students to look at Higher education as the best investment that you can make in yourselves and to never let the appearance of the impossible distract you from the bigger picture”

Send Andrew an Email

Andrew Carl earned a Bachelor of Arts in Management at Benedictine in 2011 after completing his general education at a local community college. Carl enjoys watching Chicago sports, hanging out with his wife and family, and occasionally indulging in some video games.

"One of my favorite things about the University is the openness and diversity of the community. All walks of life and ways of thinking are represented and respected. This serves to strengthen our academic and social environment as a whole. My two favorite buildings on campus are the Coal Ben and the Rice Fitness Center. You can fuel up at one location and burn it off at the other!

"As cliché as it sounds, the best advice I received as a student was to take control of my own destiny. True motivation to succeed must first come from inside."

Jessica Lang earned an Associate of Science from Lincoln College and a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Communication from Bradley University. She worked with incoming freshmen at Lincoln College for four years before joining the Benedictine community as a Graduate Admissions counselor in 2011. After a brief hiatus, she returned to Benedictine in April 2014.

"One of my favorite things about Benedictine is the hands-on experience you receive in the classroom, and the faculty and staff with whom you come in contact here at the university. There are so many people who want to help you succeed, and everyone makes you feel so welcome.

"My advice for incoming freshmen is to get involved on campus. Benedictine has so much to offer... more than 50 clubs and organizations, Division III sports and so much more."

Graduate Admissions

Amanda Skarosi graduated from The University of Iowa with a Bachelors of Arts in Communications, and is currently pursuing a master’s degree.

"If you're a working professional or a recent college graduate, an advanced degree is a great way to enhance your current career path, or expand your skill set within another area. The graduate programs at Benedictine are designed for the working adult and offer students the options and flexibility they need to fit classes into their already packed schedules."

At a recent college graduation ceremony I attended, the keynote speaker told the new graduates "by the time most of you are 38 years old you will have had 10 - 16 jobs." With that prediction it seems obtaining an advanced degree - building and/or adding to your skill set takes on a new importance.

They believe in a greater cause... not just to make themselves better, but to make the world around them a better place."
