High School Counselor Campus Visit

Participation in Counselor Visit Program 

Our high school counselor campus visit will take place Tuesday, June 13th – Thursday, June 15th 2006. It is an all-expense-paid trip — we fly you to the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University (CSB and SJU) and provide your meals, lodging, and transportation.  It’s your chance to take an in-depth look at our campuses while relaxing in the beautiful lake country of Minnesota located one hour northwest of Minneapolis. This visit will provide you with the information needed to further recommend CSB and SJU to students who you believe will benefit from our unique campus environment and educational opportunities. 

Highlights of Your Visit Will Include:

  • Talking with current students
  • Conversing with professors, faculty and staff
  • Exploring our two campuses
  • Staying on campus in upperclass apartments
  • Experiencing Benedictine hospitality
  • Relaxing in our ideal setting
  • Rock climbing, hiking or canoeing on campus
  • Asking questions of admission representatives

We make your travel arrangements:

To help you explore our two campuses we will make your travel arrangements. This will allow you to visit campus for free and enjoy a three-day professional development excursion. Here is what we will do for you to make visiting campus easier:

  • Work with you to arrange a flight or other transportation to the area
  • Pay for your airfare or other transportation costs
  • Provide transportation to and form the airport to our campus
  • Provide lodging for you on campus in upperclass apartments
