A Unique Partnership

You’re Welcome Here

CSB and SJU are two learning institutions with a shared interest in our students’ success. We are top liberal arts schools — we rank #1 and #2 in the state of Minnesota for getting jobs, by the way — grounded in Benedictine values.

Bennies and Johnnies will tell you; it’s hard to fall between the cracks here, as our faculty takes a genuine, holistic interest in the whole student, ensuring that you’re achieving your goals and aspirations. Read more about our unique way of doing things here and, hey, maybe even schedule a visit to see for yourself.

Take a Look Around

The CSB campus is located in St. Joseph, Minnesota, a cozy community that comes complete with a food co-op, boutique shops and nationally recognized restaurants. The SJU campus is only a few miles away in Collegeville, Minnesota, set on 3,300 acres of woods, lakes, prairies and even a private beach.

  • The LINK, a free shuttle service, connects our campuses with a quick 10-minute commute.
  • Red-brick buildings and cobblestone paths adorn both campuses.
  • Our campuses are located just minutes away from St. Cloud, a bustling city with abundant shopping, eating and entertainment options.

Your Future Is Bright

CSB and SJU are among the national leaders for schools yielding the highest salaries for former students. We take this very seriously, helping our students be the best version of themselves and in careers they love.

  • 90% of CSB+SJU graduates finish in four years.
  • 20% of graduates go directly to graduate school.
  • About 80% of graduates have found career-related positions or entered service work within one year of graduation.
