My name is Rachel Scianna and I’m a freshman here at Benedictine. I’m a Biology major and I hope to become a high school Bio teacher someday. I’m on the cross-country and track team here at BenU and I live on campus so I’m always running around somewhere! I live in Des Plaines, IL and attended Elk Grove High School ( a short 30-45 minute drive from here). Also, I’m obsessed with Christmas, Harry Potter, pasta, and all things that are pink!
I chose Benedictine mostly because I just felt at home here. I liked it because it’s just far enough so that I can have my own college life, but not too far where I can’t see my parents whenever I want to. I feel like everything is so personalized here because it’s such a small school, but Benedictine has all the resources of a larger school. I also came here because I wanted to run for BenU and the science program is awesome. It’s also a big plus that everyone is super warm and friendly! You won’t regret coming to Benedictine.
