4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy Blackburn College for the small class sizes and the personal relationships you can build with the professors.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This is my first semester at Blackburn, but I really like it so far. I love the small class sizes, and the professors really make an effort to get to know the students. So far, I have really enjoyed my courses and found them to be very informative. They do a great job of relating the information being taught to how we will use it in the field.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Blackburn is known for its education programs. I transferred from Lincoln land Community College, so it took a little getting used to. I really like the small class sizes at Blackburn, and the professors really seem to get to know the students very well, which is extremely helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Blackburn is in a small town, so there are very few restaurants to go to.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The lady in the financial aid office was very helpful and sat down with me and explained all of my options.

College Sophomore

Campus Food: I am a commuter, so I have only eaten campus food a few times. I thought it was pretty good.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, I am a commuter.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Since it is a small town, housing is very cheap off campus and always close to whatever you need.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Blackburn was on top of letting me know what I needed to do for my major and getting me into classes and extra things that I needed to do.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I was only in the beginning classes for my major, but it was very easy. My teacher really liked our class so she made things very easy for us. However, another group taking the same course did not have an easy time because she disliked that class.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small which is nice, but there are not very many professors or variety of classes for each major.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would not choose this school again. I need a much larger school with much more opportunities and competition.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: There is not much going on in Carlinville Illinois.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at my school that I know of.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: There is not very much fan support and school spirit.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a good variety, but the school is located in a small town so there are only typical places to eat. A few places give student discounts.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Everything with the housing is great. The dorm rooms are much larger than in many schools. The buildings have a lot of issues though, including many leaky roofs that are not being repaired.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The typical student at Blackburn College is definitely unique.

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The only "security" we had was students and half of them were not in very good shape and did not make me feel safe.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining hall did not stay open all day so if you didnt have a break during meal times then you had to go elsewhere.

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.

3 Recent Alumnus

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.

4 Recent Alumnus

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
