A message from the President

College of Saint Benedict is celebrating its 100th anniversary, beginning with commencement 2013, continuing through the 2013-2014 academic year, and concluding with commencement 2014. 

The theme for this joyful celebration, A Century of Connection, invites us to consider the ties that bind us to our heritage, and to the individuals who — from our founding year to this grand occasion — have built one of the nation's most respected colleges. 

Our centennial presents an opportunity to reflect on the enduring values that distinguish the college, and it is a time for bold imaginative thinking, as we envision how we leverage our legacy to position College of Saint Benedict for the next 100 years. Our past instructs us how to proceed, ever committed to inspiring a new generation of women as leaders, professionals and scholars. 

Throughout the centennial year, College of Saint Benedict will offer an exciting series of intellectual and lively events to honor our much-loved institution. I invite you to join in the celebration at these events. Please visit this site often for the latest information. 

Enjoy the celebration! 


MaryAnn Baenninger
President
