Due to Benedictine College’s increasing enrollment, the College reports that its board of directors recently approved a capital plan that includes building two additional residence halls with groundbreaking set to begin by the fall of 2013.
This plan is a response to the fact that enrollment at the faithful Catholic college has grown more than 100 percent since the year 2000. In fact, this will be the tenth and eleventh new residences that Benedictine has built since 2000.
“This plan is the direct result of our bold and visionary strategic plan, Benedictine 2020: A Vision for Greatness,” said Stephen D.Minnis, Benedictine College president, in the College’s release. “This is an exciting step that will help us to be a market leader in all three aspects of our mission: community, faith and scholarship.”
The faithful Catholic college’s plan is to add new residences—one for men and the other for women—for every 350 students who reside off-campus.
Also included in the plans will be an expanded cafeteria and a new Student Success Center.
