    Don't be scared by the work program. It's really beneficial and makes you deal with real world problems. Also, don't be afraid to make friends. Everyone is really nice.

    Keep an open mind. At Blackburn, you will work in one of the twelve departments on campus, which could include anything from cleaning the dorms to calling prospective students. You may find the work not to your taste, but there is always room to move up in the work program or switch jobs entirely. Take chances. Blackburn offers you major opportunities to shine. The college is small, but allows students to take leadership roles in work, clubs and organizations, sports, and classes. Schedule your time and stick to it. Working an extra 10 hours a week (which lowers tuition and grants valuable work experience) can also take a big chunk out of your free time. Always remember that you're here to learn above all else, so make sure you plan study time as well as fun periods.

    Don't be afraid to ask questions - the people you go to school with are amazing and willing to help you. We understand that this might be your first stab at freedom; however, don't go crazy with it. We care about your safety and do not want you getting hurt. Don't slack off. The effort you put into college will determine how your college experience plays out. Hard work pays off in the long run,

    Don't judge Blackburn by it's size; it may be small but the quality of friendliness and education surpass larger colleges and universities. Also don't let the work program discourage you. You are required to work if you live on campus but the experiences and skills that you learn are an amazing benefit; and the tuition reduction is a nice perk too!
