What Students Are Saying

3.49 Average Rating
It is small, but friendly. Students are able to have a relationship with their professors and receive extra help. A place where everyone knows everyone!
Nicholas from Waggoner, IL
Blackburn is small liberal arts college where students not only get a great education but a great work experience as well. The work program helps students learn time management skills and build amazing resumes, both things that help our students find jobs more quickly after graduation. An education at Blackburn means that you are not just a number but a student known by the professors on a personal level.
