“From my very first interaction of walking in the door at BenU, I felt a sense of community. My admission counselor was so easy to work with and my advisor helps me pick out the right classes that I need every semester so I can graduate in four years. All the faculty and staff are so accommodating and willing to help the students in any way possible.”
