4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Most of them are good. Care about the students and want them to do well. They are easy to get a hold of if have any problems.

Athletics: The athletic programs aren't that competitive with other schools so it isn't a very big deal on campus to go. There could be a lot more involvement.

Academics: I love the Sports Management professors. They know alot and very easy to get a hold of need help.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Small town so not much to choose from. But ask locals or upper classmen and they can tell you some of their secret spots that are good. You can always travel to Springfield or Litchfield to get a different variety if desperate.

4 College Junior

Academics: BC offers a wide range of degrees and actually has a program where if enough interest is put forth new degrees can be added

4 College Junior

Weather: I am from Northern IL so its odd to not have snow as often bits typical IL freezing one day and hot and humid another thats just IL

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: there are appartments that cater specifically to offering very cheap off campus living to students

4 College Junior

Academics: My schools Biology program is filled with very educated professors who love what they do. It can be a very stressful degree because the expect so much out of you though.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I never feel unsafe on campus. The campus security aren't very obvious around campus at night, but they respond quickly to calls, and the campus is small enough so that someone can usually hear if something ever happens.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The school is strict about the consequences of under-age drinking or cutting class.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities are older, but not of bad quality. They are close to each other and easy to access.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Typically fair. Warmer than near Chicago. High possibility of tornadoes.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Carlinville is very small. It has about three or four chain restaurants, and three or four local businesses.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The best and worst thing about Blackburn is that it is small. Best because of the one on one attention. Worst because of seeing the same old people over and over again

3 College Sophomore

Academics: For a small school there is a nice variety of courses to take

3 College Sophomore

Academics: As a bio major i enjoy the challenges that come with it but can get overwhelming at times

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Average. I like the fact that Blackburn is small but the dorms aren't too clean at times.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Some of the parking lots are gravel, which is terrible for cars that are new or freshly washed. Don't even try to park in Jones lot, whoever thought of that design must have been a mad man.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I feel like the athletes here earn this school a bad name. Most, not all, of them are extremely rude and disrespectful towards anyone who is not involved in sports or directly their friends somehow.

1 College Freshman

Parking: DCC has great parking, but the Jones Hall parking lot is so horrible.

1 College Freshman

Transportation: Everything you need you can walk to. However, if you want to go home you will need a car because Blackburn is in the sticks.
