Meet Us: BenU Mesa Admission Counselors

The Benedictine University Mesa admission counselors can help students successfully navigate the application and admission process and answer any questions that may arise. 

Our counselors are happy to share a little bit about themselves, their experiences and (hopefully) take some of the stress out of the application process! Contact them by email or phone to ask questions or schedule your campus tour or visit with them the next time they are at your school!

"The best part about my job, by far, is the ability to play a role in someone's life and getting to know a student individually. I find that highly rewarding."

"It's easy for me to express to students why they should come to BenU Mesa because I had such a great experience as an undergrad. I wanted to attend a place that felt like home and Benedictine immediately gave me that feeling the first time I stepped on campus. Benedictine gave me a lot of opportunity to grow not only as a student but as a person who I’ve always wanted to be."

"I feel that BenU Mesa is such a great school so I sent my son here! We loved the small, community feel. My son felt that he would benefit from a small classroom learning environment and receive one-on-one attention from the faculty, staff and administration."
