“Benedictine expanded my thought process when it came to my career path. Being in athletics my entire life, I have always been passionate about how I can be my best self, physically, mentally, and socially. From the different classes I’ve taken at BenU, I became aware of how much I want to be able to educate other people on how to become their best selves.” –

– Tyler Fernstrom, ’22, Health Education & Promotion
