What Students Are Saying

3.49 Average Rating
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.

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.
