3 Great Reasons to Apply Now to CSB/SJU:

Results, Scholarships, Opportunities

We may be a bit biased, but we believe there are countless reasons to apply to the College of Saint Benedict (CSB) and Saint John’s University (SJU). We could talk your ear off about our nationally-ranked study abroad program, our Catholic & Benedictine heritage, or our beautiful residential campuses set amid the woods and lakes of central Minnesota. But hey – you’re busy. Here’s three reasons to start your application today.


Great Results

For the past three years, the career search company Zippia has ranked us as the top two colleges in Minnesota for job placement and career success of graduates. And that’s not all:

  • 90% of CSB/SJU graduates finish in four years.
  • Our Experience and Professional Development Department works with you one-on-one to assist with everything from resume writing to connecting you with the best potential employers or graduate programs.
  • 97% of the class of 2018 were employed, continuing their education or engaged in a fulltime volunteer program within one year of graduation.
  • Bonus: Bennies and Johnnies have the added support of the CSB/SJU alum network! Alums frequently report a CSB/SJU connection helped them get hired, promoted or switch careers.
