We attract a certain kind of student. Inspired. Motivated. Proactive. Your relationship to Blackburn will be different than at any other school in the country. It’s intentional and foundational. It’s more than academics and activities. It’s the essence of who we are as a college and who you will become by the time you graduate.
You’re proud to be a Beaver. Your clubs and activities and friends are vital to your college experience. But, you’re more than that at Blackburn College. You’re not just another member of the student body. You’re a living, breathing part of Blackburn College. You help it function. Blackburn’s success is your success.
College is a transformational time. Our students come from diverse social, economic, and cultural backgrounds; including some underrepresented populations. At Blackburn, we’ve cultivated an inclusive environment where they all find community and belonging. Coming to campus as curious learners, here is where they learn and grow. And along with important life and work skills, they forge friendships that last a lifetime.
As we certainly develop and prepare you for a meaningful career beyond our campus, we don’t lose sight of the importance of a supportive campus life. That’s why student life at Blackburn is as multi-dimensional and diverse as our student population. We’ve cultivated an inclusive environment, with 11 sports teams and over 35 clubs and organizations. And this effort of inclusion never stops. If there’s an interest that’s not represented on campus, any student can simply reach out to the Office of Student Engagement and we’ll work with you to create your own group or club.
Our students are motivated and inspired. They’re purposeful in their thinking and doing. They’re dedicated in their working and playing. Every Blackburn College student is intelligent, forward-thinking, and forward-looking. Together, we’re forward-moving.
