Benedictine University is an inclusive academic community dedicated to teaching and learning, scholarship and service, truth and justice, as inspired by the Catholic intellectual tradition, the social teaching of the Church, and the principles of wisdom in the Rule of St. Benedict.
Benedictine University aspires to be a thought leader in Catholic higher education. We seek to provide a transformative and integrative educational experience grounded in Benedictine values, helping students shape lives of meaning and purpose as engaged citizens who care for the earth, welcome people of diverse faiths and cultures, and promote the common good.
As your student embarks upon the last semester before summer break they may become a bit anxious around mid-March. Let’s remind them to pace themselves and to reach out if they find themselves struggling with managing their stress.
This is also flu season, a good time to send your student a care package (which they still love) with cold essentials as we encourage them to wash their hands, get rest, and stay hydrated.
Thank you for the important role that you play in supporting your student.
