My favorite thing about Black River Technical College is that the campus is really safe. They have campus police and other great qualities so that you can feel safe on campus. Something that I would definitely like to see change is being able to get the whole Associate's of Arts Degree online. There are many classes available to take online but as of right now, you cannot complete your whole degree online.
Absolutely love this small college. It has 2 campuses and would recommend it to anyone who’s fresh outta high school trying to get their basics first before going on to a university. Tuition is very affordable!
