To help incoming students transition to college life and introduce them to academic and campus life on the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University campuses.

Activities include:
  • Getting to know your Orientation Leaders and group through various activities

  • Get to know your residential community
  • Evening Social Programming
  • Fun, interactive, and informative presentations
  • Welcomings from the Monastic Communities
  • Meet-a-Prof sessions 

The candle lighting ceremony during the CSB President's Dinner is always a highlight for new Bennies.
