My favorite part of going to this college has been the quality of education for the price. It is only a two-year school, but the classes still offer the same quality material that a larger university would and with the added charm of small class sizes and a more personalized experience. I was even able to take classes concurrently through high school and get an entire semester out of the way. You can get anywhere on campus in a three-minute walk, but you wouldn't need to make it that long because there are parking lots surrounding each building. It's a very comfortable place to spend the first two years of your college education, and most of the instructors seem to really love their jobs. Even in my world civilization class at 8am, Dr. Power is cracking jokes and making the material fun.
Review Black River Technical College
I am going into nursing and I think they provide many assets! They just built a new health and science complex that is amazingly advanced. Along with that, the graduation rate from the program is very high and has been for a continuous number of years.
I am very happy with my choice to attend college here! I love how warm and friendly the staff are! They make you feel like they care rather than just trying to get your tuition money. The small campus and moderate amount of students makes it easy to find where you need to go and gives the instructors more one on one time.
