The College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University invite you to experience our community and discover what being a Bennie or Johnnie is all about! We recognize students are at many different phases in the college search process, and therefore offer a variety of visit opportunities to make sure your time at CSB/SJU is meaningful to you. Hope to see you soon!
Touring the campuses, meeting with an admission representative, enjoying a meal in one of our 4 dining facilities and meeting with a financial aid representative are just a few of the many opportunities you will have access to during an individual visit. You can schedule an individual visit through our individual visit calendar or by calling the Admission Office at (800-544-1489). Review our academic calendar for a list of our campus breaks.
