Just to clarify I go to the East Campus. The teachers and students are very friendly which makes it a very welcoming atmosphere. However, the East Campus is known for their equine program and agricultural programs. The science fields are decent. If your major isn't in one of those fields there really isn't much for you.
I went to Black Hawk College because I got a 2-year scholarship to go there, and I am so glad I did. I had such an amazing experience at this college; if it were a 4-year university, I would definitely stay there. Something I really liked were the professors; every professor I had was the best. They really help you succeed; the advisors are great as well. It is affordable, and it was very close to my house. The campus is very clean and friendly; you really feel like home while you are there. I just wish there were more electives to pick from.
Very average staff. Material can be easy to understand. Has some great professors and not so great professors. Staff may seem energetic to help, but sometimes not every help. Price is very good. Remodeled the library and soon the foyer which I am excited about.

After going to a small high school, BHC made the transition to college so easy! The smaller campus and class sizes wasn't overwhelming and the staff was there to help you with any questions. As a former student, and current teacher, I recommend BHC to all of my high school students unsure of where to attend college.
The faculty at this facility is enthusiastic and encouraging. The curriculum, depending on the course in which one is enrolled, is challenging but achievable, leaving the student well prepared to continue in taking higher level courses.
My time in the art department was fantastic. I loved the teachers, they really cared about their students. Unfortunately, the board didn't care that they were cutting some fantastic teachers and that their students would follow. BHC had an amazing art program, the best in the area. Better than the two 4 year colleges in the are. And now they don't, they're not worth going to anymore. I recommend all graduating high school students to head straight to university or to another community college in the area.
I transferred here from private university..a big change from what I am used to. My other school did not offer a nursing program like Blackhawk does
While Black Hawk is a good stepping stone, keep in mind it is not the college experience one might be looking for. There are many resources available to help students, but networking and making friends is difficult due to the nature of the school.
I liked that my professors were really understanding and actually tried to help when you needed it.
I would like to see change in the counseling department. You have to make an appointment and the scheduling timing doesn’t work very well.
Black Hawk is a very friendly school with qualified teachers that love there jobs and love to see their students succeed.
I have loved my time at Black Hawk. They provide so many excellent resources for new students, first-gen and transfer students. I have been so blessed with all of the resources around me. They have made my job incredibly easy by not having to stress over college apps and such.
Black Hawk College is such an amazing school. A very good transition school that eases you in the college life. The teachers care about your future and they go out of their way to make sure you understand what you are learning. If I can give this school more than 5 stars I would.
I am currently attending Black Hawk College as the first step in my journey of becoming a secondary education teacher. So far, I have had an amazing experience! I am visually impaired and have found that Black Hawk has an amazing disability services center. They are always ready to help and make setting up class accommodations very simple. I am also a part of Black Hawk's transfer program and it is incredible. My Trio adviser makes sure that the classes I take benefit both my degree and transfer over to the university I am hoping to attend. Overall it has been a great experiece starting at Black Hawk. The staff is so helpful and friendly.
BHC is very good two year school to get a lot of your general courses done. Tuition is reasonable. They make transferring to a four year very easy.
Black hawk college is a great community college to get yourself started in the college scene. The diversity is great and so is the student life activities and events they have there. They need improvement on some of the advisors they have for the students as they are not helpful in putting you in the right direction. But they have great classes and transfer options for the price
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.
My experience at BHC so far is great, I have meet many new life long friends and have learned a lot in the automotive classes that I am taking so I can receive my AAS in Automotive technology. The small campus and class sizes remind me a lot about my high school so it is easy to get to know the people you see every day such as class mates and teachers. the student life is very laid back and the people on the campus make you feel welcome every day when you go to your classes. As for the food on campus, it is very reasonably priced and is just a good as a restaurant would be.

After reveiwing the overall completion rates for graduation. THis is a community college for a vast amount of students in our communities and cities.
The graduation rate is approximately 20%, which is a very low rate for the expense students and parents pay for schooling.
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.
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.
