Why choose BenU Mesa? 

We're not a one-size fits all kind of campus. Benedictine Mesa prides itself on the ability to allow our students to develop personal relationships with our faculty and staff that carry over into their careers. With an average of 15 students in each class, our faculty are able to use engaged learning techniques to help students learn and prepare for life after college. 

We're Affordable!

People have the misconsumption that because we are a private school, we must have a high tuition. Fact is, depending on your financial aid and scholarships, we can cost even less than any other school in the area. We offer over 100 different scholarships to our students.
