Benedictine University, one of the nation's fastest-growing colleges, is a vibrant, diverse university with regional, national and international reach.
Students can attend Benedictine's main campus, in Lisle, IL (25 miles west of downtown Chicago), which offers 20 NCAA Division III varsity sports programs, or the Mesa branch campus - the first Catholic university in Arizona. The Mesa branch campus has a growing athletics program and currently competes in men’s and women’s cross country, golf, tennis and volleyball and in 2015 will compete in men’s and women’s basketball, and men’s and women’s soccer.
At the Lisle campus, students can choose from 55 undergraduate majors. Continuing to innovate, Benedictine recently added programs in Business Analytics and Exercise Sports Studies. Popular areas of concentration include Health Science, Psychology and Biology. The average class size is 18 and no classes are taught by graduate assistants. Students can study overseas at partner institutions in Vietnam and China.
Benedictine has won awards and accolades for diversity, environmental sustainability (using renewable resources to repurpose buildings), campus affordability and safety. To ensure campus religious diversity while remaining faithful to the University's Catholic heritage, Benedictine offers interfaith programs in an atmosphere of inclusion.
Benedictine University promises its students an affordable and attainable education infused with the Benedictine values that creates better learners, leaders and world citizens. Student learning and success is our first priority.

These include 529 plans, banks, brokerage firms, companies, credit unions, mutual funds, non-profits and diverse financial service companies involved in life insurance, health insurance or retirement plans.

The SAGE Scholars Tuition Rewards Consortium is a unique private college enrollment marketing tool to fill a "traditional" freshman class. Our member colleges & universities are able to identify prospective students from families who are actively saving and planning for higher education or work for a company that provides good benefits... and who have indicated interest in attending a private college. SAGE Students tend to be well qualified - both academically and financially.
Employees of companies which offer voluntary benefits through select national insurers, or who partner directly with SAGE can earn guaranteed college scholarships for use at over almost 400 private colleges and universities across the United States, for their children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews, based on their 401(k), 403(b), profit-sharing or other company sponsored retirement savings plan. Tuition Rewards is available nationwide through over 135,000 participating employers. What could be better than helping to make the ever-escalating cost of college more affordable for your employees? Tuition Rewards should help give your company an edge in workplace satisfaction - and in attracting and retaining talent.
