Live miles or even oceans away? Crazy-full calendar? Whatever might keep you from seeing our schools in person, we want you to truly experience the Saint Ben’s and Saint John’s campuses all the same.
Take our interactive, 360-degree video tour. You’ll see dozens of our favorite campus spots, experience events and even meet students and professors along the way. We can’t wait to - virtually - show you around!
From the strong relationships between students and professors, the discussion-based classroom environment and the intimate class sizes, our liberal arts curriculum builds a strong foundation for long-term success.
CSB+SJU foster critical thinking and helps students succeed in their areas of interest with more academic opportunities than a typical small, private college. Learn more about our 60+ majors and academic programs.
Think you can’t afford a private college?
It’s probably the most stated myth in higher education: a private college is not affordable. We hear it often. Even though families recognize the value of our high-quality education, countless students and alums tell us they weren’t sure about CSB+SJU originally because of the price.
But did you know 95% of Bennies and Johnnies receive scholarship or grant assistance to help them pay for college? A CSB+SJU education may be more affordable than you think.
We get it, a college’s return on investment is a big deal. We’re proud that Saint John’s and Saint Ben’s rank as the #1 and #2 colleges in Minnesota for getting a job. In fact, more than 97% of graduates are employed, continuing their education or engaged in a full-time volunteer program within one year of graduation.
Not only are CSB+SJU alums employed, they’re successful. The Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce found CSB and SJU are among the national leaders for schools yielding the highest salaries for former students.
