    Every Friday and Saturday there is something free to do on campus or you can go get a free movie or game of bowling in. What is happening each weekend is posted on a calendar where everyone has access to it.

    Carlinville, where Blackburn presides, is a very sleepy town. Yet, the Campus Activities Board holds student events every weekend. These include live musicians, comedians, free bowling and movie nights, and bingo, just to name a few. Individual dorms also host smaller events like bonfires and movie marathons. Yet, if you want excitement off campus, you will probably have to drive about 40 minutes to Springfield or an hour to St. Louis. If you are from a small town, this kind of environment should be no problem, but a student from a big city might find this place to be slow and boring. Though there is one thing that the area has to offer: it's very scenic. Sloping hills, a cobblestone square, and historical buildings pepper the town, making it amazing for walks and even hikes if you go to Lake Carlinville or Beaver Dam, which also offer fishing.

    A lot of people hang out to have fun. There's an awesome drive-in theatre fifteen minutes away from campus. The school has tons of free events for students to attend such as free movie night, free bowling, bingo, the dueling piano bar, plays, comedians, and so much more.

    Every weekend Blackburn hosts an event, whether its a band performing, a hypnotist, or bingo night in the community center. Blackburn also partners with the local movie theater and local bowling alley to host free movie and free bowling nights, both of which occur several times throughout the semester.

    Plenty of college events an activities which take place randomly throughout the months, which is another good way to get out of the room and meet new people.

    Athletics are always great, we are currently looking for cross country runners. For the more art oriented we have knitting club, and some are looking to start an art club. If nothing is interesting you can start a club, just ask any club president or our counselor.
