The study of science is central to the Benedictine University mission. That is why Benedictine has set aside a day specifically for students who are interested in pursuing a degree in the sciences. 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 17 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. Undergraduate student research projects will also be available for viewing. For more information, please call the Enrollment Center at (630) 829-6300, e-mail admissions@ben.edu or visit Benedictine University on the Web at www.ben.edu.
