The heart of the Saint Ben's and Saint John's undergraduate experience is rooted in a lively and sustained engagement between students and faculty — both in the classroom and beyond.
- Professors actively encourage students to take responsibility for and own their education.
- Discussion-based classes and active learning teaching practices typify CSB and SJU classrooms and curricular challenges.
- Experiential educational opportunities in study abroad, service learning, internships and undergraduate research, as well as learning communities and residential hall learning programs are central to a full Saint Ben's and Saint John's learning experience.
