Purpose-driven Education

It’s not easy to explain what it means to become a Bennie or a Johnnie, but when you have it, it’s yours for life. Some say it’s the connections you develop during your education. Others say it’s the way that faculty go out of their way to make you feel supported even when there’s a rough patch. Maybe it’s that you’re surrounded by people with shared values, yet diverse in background and culture. Whatever the reason, we’re proud of it and know you will be, too.
