What's in a Name?

Buildings at the College of Saint Benedict named after Sisters 

by Sister Owen Lindblad and Sister Miriam Ardolf

Like the tiny seed it was, the College of Saint Benedict (CSB) took root on a patch of ground here in St. Joseph, Minnesota nearly 100 years ago. From one solid structure, buildings for the Catholic, Benedictine, cultural education of young women sprouted and spread with the "good air" and "sunshine" applied by the Sisters of Saint Benedict. Today, many of those early devoted Sisters' names mark the lintels of CSB's halls of higher learning. 

There are 22 buildings named after Sisters from the monastery. Here is a complete listing. More information on the buildings is available at www.csbsju.edu/CSB-Archives
