Be a Bennie
Be a Johnnie

The traditions, talents and values of this community make this a place where Bennies and Johnnies don’t just learn – they lead, they grow and they change.

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.

Make Yourself a Home

We want to ensure that you obtain more than a superb education; you should be immersed in ways to grow your curiosity and excel at being yourself in this world. 

We get that applying for college can feel overwhelming. Here, your application is a welcoming point. It helps us learn about your personality and how you see us helping you meet your full potential. Through the Admission process, we hope you get to know yourself a little better, too. Until then, take a moment to watch our college tour.
