Blackburn College Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


The professors really do know who their students are and will contact a student if he/she misses more than 2 days. They are very invested in the students.


My high school teachers always said that college was scary and professors don't care. That isn't true. College is a wonderful experience and should not be feared. People are friendly and open to help you around campus or with classwork. Teachers really want you to succeed and miss you when you're gone. I wish I would have known that there isn't a reason to be afraid of college when you first get there.


I wish I would have known more about the social aspects of the college I had chosen.


Something that I wish I had known before I came to school would be the fact that we cannot earn a paycheck in any of the departments on campus. When I enrolled I was under the understanding that we could work extra hours in our designated department to earn an actual paycheck if we wished.


I wish I would have known more about the different dorms.


I wish i would have known that college life isn't that bad. I was a little nervous when I started, but after being at the school for a semester i really enjoyed it. I got to know people i probably would have never talked to and even joined clubs. I just wish i would have known that getting out there and enjoying the college experience is good.


I wish I had known what major I wanted to go into so I wouldn't be behing. I also wish I had looked at more schools that varied in sizes.
