Benedictine University
HISTORY Founded in 1887 in Chicago as St. Procopius College, we relocated to Lisle in 1901. We were renamed Illinois Benedictine College in 1971. In response to community needs, we added graduate, doctorate and adult learner programs. We became Benedictine University in 1996. Today, the University remains committed to providing a high-quality, catholic, liberal education for men and women.

Benedictine University is situated on a rolling, tree-covered 108-acre campus of 10 major buildings with air-conditioned classrooms and modern, well-equipped laboratories. A comprehensive learning center with full media library and a modern and technically advanced science facility, filled with advanced laboratory space, digital classrooms and modern research equipment opened in Fall 2001. A student athletic center features three full-size basketball courts, a competition-size swimming pool, three tennis courts and training facilities. All of the residence halls are comfortable and spacious, and have access to the Internet. Other features include a scenic campus pond, spacious and well-kept athletic fields, a student center with dining halls, a game room lounges, bookstore, and meeting rooms.

In addition to the new academic facilities, the University added Founders' Woods, an independent student apartment community, inviting students to experience the privacy and relaxation of apartment living, while reaping the advantages of a campus environment.

US News & World Report's 2001 rankings listed Benedictine University as one of the top universities in the Midwest Region. The magazine also ranked the school one of the top five in the region for Campus Diversity.

LOCATION Benedictine University is 25 miles west of Chicago, in suburban Lisle near Naperville, and is easily accessible from the city and suburbs via the interstate highway system. The Burlington Northern train stops in Lisle and O'Hare International Airport is only a 30-minute drive away. In addition to the many social and cultural offerings of the Chicago metropolitan area, the University enjoys the proximity and use of Argonne National Laboratory, Fermi National accelerator Laboratory, the Morton Arboretum, a ski hill, riding stable and several golf courses. The University's location in the high-tech East-West Tollway corridor gives students opportunities for internships and employment.

ACADEMIC FACILITIES The Kindlon Hall of Learning and the Birck Hall of Science bring science and technology to new levels. They house state of the art computer labs, specialized science labs, a research center and the Jurica Nature Museum.
The Library houses 180,000 processed volumes. The library is a member of LIBRAS, a cooperative organization of eighteen college libraries in the Chicago area that makes available more than two million volumes and 4,500 periodical titles. Through ILCSO (Illinois Library Computer Systems Organization), Lownik Library has access to approximately 20 million items from other Illinois libraries.
Benedictine University has distance education classrooms that provide students with the capability to interact, globally, with other colleges and universities in a classroom setting.
