Benedictine University has a rich tradition in the sciences. Each year, more incoming students at Benedictine indicate a desire to pursue a degree in the sciences than any other major. High school students, students planning to transfer from community colleges or other post-secondary institutions and their families will have the opportunity to learn more about the science programs at Benedictine University at a Science Open House from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 15 on the Second Floor of the Krasa Student Center. Students will hear from the Dean of the College of Science, speak with faculty and staff during the science information fair, and have the opportunity to tour the University campus and laboratories.
