Blackburn College Reviews
I absolutely adore Blackburn College. I started here because it is a small, private, liberal-arts college. And added bonus is the uniqueness of it... it is one of seven work colleges in the country, and we are the only student managed one! I feel such pride and feel so proud to be here. I am a first-year student, and can already say I am a resident assistant and the future president of Student Senate for the 2019-20 school year, and much more. The professors are wonderful, the academics are good because they are challenging, and so much more. I am so proud to be a Blackburn student.
I love that Blackburn is a small campus in the middle of a small town, my hometown. The people have always been nice and supportive and I've heard great things about their programs. Looking forward to being there this fall!
I am having an amazing time at Blackburn. The atmosphere is so tightly knitted and family oriented! Blackburn also has so many opportunities that help their students succeed!
