2 College Junior

Campus Resources: Only at the main Blinn campus in Brenham are there athletics. The student center is alright, a couple mediocre food places that say they're healthy, but in actuality they're just the same as going to a fast food place, a bunch of tables and chairs to eat and do homework, a couple TV's, and a pool table and ping pong table. The library is pretty good, though. There aren't many campus activities that go on. I saw a flyer on one door about a Thanksgiving dinner, but no one I knew was going to go. Mainly the campus is used to go to class and to go home. Having to stay there longer than necessary is a real bummer.

Campus Resources: Everything is pretty good electronically wise. Everything works properly, and everything you would need as a student is easily available.

College Junior

Online Courses: I haven't taken an online course at Blinn yet, so I can not give an opinion at the time. I do plan to take an online course this summer, however.

2 College Junior

Student Body: To me, there are only a few types of students at Blinn. The first kind: The student who wanted to go to Texas A&M University, but were not accepted, so they go to Blinn until they can get into A&M. The second kind: The really weird students who really don't care where they are, they just want go to college because that's what they know and that's what their friends did. They hangout in groups and dress really weird and shun themselves from the rest of the student body. And the third kind: The students who are going to Blinn as their first choice in order to better themselves, possibly just because they want to do better than their parents did. They want to prove themselves, or make their family happy.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Getting through the financial aid process with Blinn is hard enough on a college student, but then it takes ages for the refund to actually go through and get back to the student! The financial aid system at Blinn is a joke.

2 College Junior

Facilities: Blinn College is more of a group of building that contain different compartments for learning, rather than a thriving, social place to learn and make friends. It's like you just go there for the allotted time of your classes and go home. You keep to yourself mostly, and you just want to get in and get out. They are trying to promote clubs and activities, which is good, but I feel as if it is just not catching on. I mean, they just need to see it for what it is: a community college. The best part, I believe, are the professors. They are so dedicated and involved in what they teach. It's not just a job for them, it's their lives.

Academic Flexibility: The professors themselves can move around their curriculum to aid themselves, but it is very hard for the students to be able to make up an assignment, and it is unnecessarily hard to get an excused absence. Short of a family death (if you have a pamphlet from the funeral) or a hospital visit (with correct forms), the student will receive an unexcused absence. Also, the students are forced to come to class when there is nothing on the agenda on that day. For the past week in my English class, for example, my teacher has been out due to a family emergency. Instead of emailing us to cancel class, she was forced for us to attend class with a substitute and all we did was watch a movie. A complete waste of all the student's time, and the substitute teachers time, who is another professor at Blinn College.

Academic Experience: There is not much recognition for a Music major at Blinn College in Bryan, Texas. I am currently taking core classes that I need, in case I decide to change my majors, since the Music major is not really relevant here or at Texas A&M.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Everything is pretty good! I have liked almost all of my professors. They are hard on the students, but I like that more than an easy professor. It makes the students actually do things for themselves, instead of being spoon fed.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Well, it is a relatively diverse campus. Growing up in a small town, it's plenty diverse to me! Most of the student population on the campus in Brenham (about 95%!) are either Caucasian, Black, or Hispanic. Neither one of those three are a real minority here. I'd say most are Christians and I'd definitely declare that most are republican. It's not a very open-minded campus, but it is friendly. Most are pretty laid-back (in a good way), but don't really put a lot of effort into school work or studying. But then again, we really aren't pushed too hard to. A lot of the students grew up in the country, either poor, at poverty level, or working lower/working middle class. Everyone is pretty accepting, or as accepting as country born and raised, right-wing conservatists can be (and I say that in the most friendly way possible). Surprisingly, there aren't many challenges for acceptance here.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Very little peer-to-peer interaction, but the workload is to be expected and the professors are accessible and more than happy to communicate with you. Actually loved taking online Geography and Speech more than any of my face-to-face classes!

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: There are a few EXCELLENT teachers on the campuses for my major, and the program is GREAT. It is a great area in general to be an education major in.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The workload is heavy, the professors are knowledgeable (mostly), but the registration process was very confusing

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: There isn't a very wide variety of class times available

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is relatively cheap, and I hate to say this -- but so is the education I'm receiving. I get what I paid for, I suppose...

2 College Sophomore

Career Services: When it comes to career services, it is so confusing and often leaves a student feeling alienated. The campus counselors are very little help (and yes, I've gone to more than one of them) and the career and student days are mostly for people looking to transfer to a specific university. (Texas A&M)

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: It's just average. I've never used the athletic centers, the student center is usually deserted and quiet -- unless there is a campus activity going on that day, and the library is actually pretty nice. It is a beautiful campus and there are LOTS of activities all throughout both semesters.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Lots of available, fast, and up-do-date computers,

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Well, it is the oldest junior college in state of Texas with a high transfer rate. The school itself is open admittance, and the professors care, but everyone is extremely laid back. It is one of the only junior colleges in the area, and I am a commuter student -- so although there are plenty of different types of students, I don't spend a lot of extra time on campus socializing. There are lots of job opportunities for college students though, and that is a good thing.
