Tueday Tour Day – Benedictine University at Springfield

This week, we’re touring Benedictine University at Springfield!

Benedictine University at Springfield dedicates itself to the education of undergraduate and graduate students from diverse ethnic, racial and religious backgrounds.  As an academic community committed to liberal arts and professional education-distinguished and guided by its Roman Catholic tradition and Benedictine heritage-the University prepares its students for a lifetime as active, informed and responsible citizens and leaders in a world community.

A liberal arts core prepares all undergraduate students to participate fully in a diverse and dynamic society-balancing their rights and duties as individuals with the demands of the common good.  Professional education at the undergraduate and graduate levels, built on the liberal arts background of students, is multidisciplinary in nature and prepares graduates for roles of leadership and social responsibility.

Benedictine University at Springfield at Springfield is located on a beautiful 25-acre campus anchored by the historic Brinkerhoff Home built in 1869 by George Brinkerhoff, a close friend of President Abraham Lincoln.  The campus includes a library, a science building, an academic and administration building, workout facility and intramural gymnasium, three residence halls and on-campus apartments.  An additional eight acres of sports playing fields and a gymnasium are located three blocks southeast of the campus.

Benedictine University at Springfield is a full member of the American Midwest Conference (AMC) in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).  The NAIA Eligibility Center is responsible for determining the NAIA eligibility of first-time student-athletes.  Any student playing NAIA championship sports for the first time must meet the eligibility requirements. Students must have their eligibility determined by the NAIA Eligibility Center, and all NAIA schools are bound by the center’s decisions.

A college education is one of the largest financial investments a family will make. We believe that an education from Benedictine University at Springfield will provide valuable returns throughout a student’s lifetime. The Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to helping students and their families make a Benedictine University education affordable.
