Blackburn offers many classes for a wide variety of people. Having just built a new $1mil+ science building in the last 5 years, Blackburn's science program is booming. The teachers have every intention of making you learn, which is wonderful.

    It's great place to be yourself and make friends. The work program gets you involved with more people and makes the college experience more enjoyable. Classes are small so there is more opportunity for one on one from teachers.

    Blackburn was a life-changing experience for me. At first, I only attended to follow my sister to school. Yet, the work program, small class sizes, and the amazing faculty and staff developed a passion in me that I plan to pursue through graduate school and beyond.

    Blackburn College is the only student-managed work college in the United States. Our dedicated professors and professionals look to have meaningful relationships with all students. And students will leave Blackburn more prepared for life after school than they would at a normal four year university.

    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.

    It is a small private, friendly school. The courtesy displayed by the students is contagious. Our student managed work program does not promote superiority outside the workplace, making it easy to talk to your bosses.
