Ben Beginnings 2020

Welcome Eagles!

As you embark on this new experience as an Eagle, we know our Ben Beginnings events will set the stage for your college career. We hope you are just as excited to be at BenU as we are to have you here!

This year might be different, but there are still tons of events to attend as part of Ben Beginnings from social to educational, and from optional to required. Ben Beginnings is the foundation for new students to build community, learn about being a student at Benedictine, and celebrate you becoming part of Benedictine. Ben Beginnings programming will be provided virtually, live-streamed, and/or through small group gatherings. The more events you attend, the greater your chance to win prizes! To secure your spot, dates and times for events, please RSVP for our required event and any additional events below:



We sincerely appreciate the patience of students and families as we plan for a safe engaging environment.  Check out the complete schedules for freshman, transfers and parents & families here:

We look forward to welcoming you to the flock throughout the month of August in preparation to the first day of classes on Monday, August 31.
