Benedictine College was officially established on July 1, 1971, but it traces its roots to the St. Benedict's College which was founded in 1858, and the Mount St. Scholastica College which was established in 1923. The two merged to form Benedictine College. This private coeducational college has a 110-acre campus in Atchison, Kansas.
Benedictine College offers undergraduate programs of study in the fields of art, biology, education, engineering, English, criminology, music, business administration, and mathematics, among others. Students can also opt for master's degrees in business administration, and school leadership.
The athletics department of Benedictine College fields more than 10 teams in baseball, basketball, football, cross country, soccer, track and field, softball, and volleyball. The men's teams are known as the Ravens, and the women's teams are nicknamed the Lady Ravens. They compete in the Heart of America Athletic Conference, and the NAIA. Students also publish a newspaper called "The Circuit", and a literary magazine known as "Loomings".
