The Dining Services of Blackburn College has worked hard to design a meal program guaranteed to meet your individual needs. You’ve got plenty on your mind: classes, sports, clubs, community service etc., so we’ve made it our goal to make sure that you won’t have to worry about finding something great to eat when you want it. We want Blackburn College to have the best college dining service there is, and with your help we can do it! Click here for more information.


Blackburn students are justifiably proud of their residence halls: students have had a hand in the construction and/or maintenance of each one. Feelings of ownership and finding a real “home away from home” run deep as students quickly adopt their halls and rooms as their own. Click here for more information.

Blackburn has loads of clubs and organizations just waiting for you to participate, like cheerleading, BCF (Blackburn Christian Fellowship, student government and B.A.D.D. (Beavers Against Destructive Decisions). You can also join in a Habitat for Humanity build or write for the ‘Burnian, Blackburn’s college newspaper. If you check out all the clubs and still can’t find one that interests you, you can create your own! Click here to see the list.


When the weekend rolls around, there are plenty of happenings to keep you busy. The Office of Student Activities hosts comedians, hypnotists, and concerts almost every Friday in Bothwell auditorium. You can fill your calendar with Bingo nights, dances, movies in the quad, athletic events and much more.

Welcome to Carlinville, Illinois

CarlinvilleMap1Voted one of “The 100 Best Small Towns in America”. With a population of nearly 7,000 people in the greater Carlinville area, we are unique among towns our size. We enjoy a large historic district, the center of which is the town square. Still the focal point of community activity, the square is known for its historic buildings, beautiful gazebo and open air summer concerts. Visible above the building tops is the great dome of the Macoupin County Courthouse, once the largest county courthouse in the country.

Carlinville is more than historic buildings, it’s also a cultural center, with excellent educational institutions, leading industry, and entertainment. Click here to read more!
