Welcome Students

CSB and SJU partner with area higher ed institutions to welcome students to Central Minnesota

The College of Saint Benedict (CSB) and Saint John's University (SJU), along with our educational partners St. Cloud State University and St. Cloud Technical & Community College, welcome more than 28,000 students back to the St. Cloud area this fall.

These students make an impact and immerse themselves into the Central Minnesota region in countless ways. According to a St. Cloud Times Aug. 18 editorial, the students of the four schools combined to volunteer 1.54 million hours of community service to the Central Minnesota region.

CSB and SJU's students come from places both near and far. This year's new entering first-year class is estimated to be 1,045 and represents 18 states and 18 countries. Their youthful energy will contribute greatly to the vibrancy of the region.
