Black Hawk College Reviews
Best of both worlds! I've been to a community college and a university in the past, and black hawk college is great when it comes to small numbers in the classroom so there is a lot of one on one time with the professors, and also big enough to get involved in groups and making friends. I'll recommend this college to anyone.
If you're from the area it's just like high school all over again; everyone knows everyone. Decent school, sometimes it's hot as hell but not a bad school overall. Most teachers are excellent and it's a more economical choice than going to a 4 year uni straight after high school. The advisors are terrible though. Don't listen to them if you don't have to, just go to your transfer college or find the degree plan for your major and you'll do yourself a huge favor and not waste anytime.
I AM CURRENTLY A SOPHOMORE AT BLACK HAWK COLLEGE, AND I THINK BLACK HAWK COLLEGE WAS A GOOD CHOICE FOR ME WHEN I GOT RIGHT OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL. I LIVE IN THE SAME TOWN, AND HAVE ALL MY LIFE SO IT TAKES LITERALLY TEN MINUTES TO DRIVE TO THE EAST CAMPUS. MY TEACHERS ARE AWESOME, AND LOVE WHAT THEY DO AND IF I EVER NEEDED HELP THEY WOULD BE GLAD TO HELP. THE CAFETERIA ONLY HAS TWO VENDORS, HAPPY JOE'S AND A LOCAL BAR RESTAURANT CALLED CERNO'S. THEY HAVE GOOD FOOD THOUGH, BUT IT IS DEFINITELY LESS OPTIONS THAN OTHER SCHOOLS IN ILLINOIS. THE TUITION IS CHEAP, AND THE QUALITY OF THE EDUCATION IS GOOD. OUR AG PROGRAM IS REALLY GOOD, PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY COME FOR OUR AG PROGRAM. AG BUSINESSES VALUE THE BLACK HAWK COLLEGE AG ALUM. OVERALL, I WOULD RATE MY EXPERIENCE AS A FOUR AND A HALF STAR RATING OUT OF FIVE.
