Welcome to Raft U

Four sides. Four years.

Students at the College of Saint Benedict (CSB) and Saint John's University (SJU) don't actually go to college on a raft. However, we do have a raft at our on-campus beach, and the CSB/SJU experience is a lot like a raft.

The raft's four sides become the four years of your college experience.* And, like a raft, our campuses overflow with activity and friendships and lifelong memories.

We're a special place where students jump headfirst into academic challenges, artistic endeavors, global adventures, community service, athletic competition, internships and research.

*92% of our graduates complete their degree in four years. You'll want to check how many sides (years) you will need at other colleges.
