Welcome to Blackburn College!
I am glad you found us. The experience offered at Blackburn College is like no other in the country or world. The integration of our student-led Work Program and strong, 4-year Liberal Arts and Sciences degrees mean that our students are ready to compete in a 21st-century world. They have a broad adaptable credential that has given them skills in critical thinking and problem-solving, and they have been challenged to develop work skills and habits that account for our 97% placement rate within 6-months of graduation. We have a “best in the world model” that not only produces powerful outcomes but provides students an engaging, team-oriented, involved experience while here and as alumni. It’s an incredible place, so unique that not every student should pursue. However – for those of you who want an experience like no other, where you will actively learn, grow, and be changed, I can’t think of any better college than Blackburn. As you consider your options, I have two messages for you –
Students – if you want to be fully engaged, learn leadership, make deep connections with others, and come away with a credential and skills that will benefit you for the rest of your life – you may have found the right place! We are one-of-a-kind.
Parents/Family/Friends – you may have been focused on getting your student into a good college. Know that we are already focused on their success after college. And we have the system in place to ensure that the student experience at Blackburn will uniquely prepare our students for the future – with work skills and/or application at the forefront.
Welcome to our family. Thanks for your interest in, and commitment to, Blackburn College – now and into the future!
