Most Helpful Review for Black Hawk College

  • Review by: A Student from IL
  • 2 out of 2 people found this review helpful

Too many people feel that a community college will offer a sub par education compared to a four year university. The teaching staff here is excellent and I know that I am getting the same education as my friends at large universities. If anything, Black Hawk offers even more than a large university because of the opportunities for one on one time with professors. The only downside is the smaller number and decreased variety of classes offered here. But, this isn't a problem for people who just want to take take core or introductory classes.

    I believe that Black Hawk College is a great place to study if you are aiming for a four-year degree and want to save money with a two-year transfer program. The staff are very nice and caring. The small campus is very accessible in terms of time management and hospitality.

    Black Hawk College is a typical, small community college. There are some wonderful teachers and classes available. However, there are not many opportunities to participate in clubs and other extracurricular activities.

    The instructors are great and really put the time and effort into helping your succeed. The campus is not too big and it is easy to find everything around the campus. The students in my classes always try to help each other out to find the answers, especially in math!
