The Alumni Association can help you maintain these valuable connections, serve as a resource in a new city, build a network for you throughout your career, and keep in touch with classmates and other alumni.

Of course, financial support is always welcome. The financial contributions of Benedictine University alumni represent a vital resource for the University’s programs, scholarships, and services.

Alumni board Scholarship Recipient

Neena Franklin ’23 (Westchester, IL)
Nutrition and Dietetics major

I am honored to have been chosen to receive the Alumni Board Scholarship as it allows me to continue to get the most out of my education. This school has given me more than I could imagine through the incredible staff as well as the Benedictine community. I hope to one day be able to give back to the school that has given me so much, in a similar way that the Alumni Association has most graciously helped me. I am the person I am today because of the generosity and genuine people who I have experienced during my time here at Benedictine. Thank you to all those that have ever been able to proudly say they are an Eagle.
