Post by ging on Wed Jun 21, 2017 10:39 am

for those of you who live in the southern part of the state (or anyone else familiar with the school), what's your opinion of Blackburn college?  asking for a friend.

They dropped football years ago....


I went there from 1994-1998, playing football and baseball. If you have specific questions, shoot me a PM. It's changed some, since the time I was there, but I can share what I know.

I did not meet SIFB on my visit there but I did meet a member of the football team that went by the name of Moose. He seemed dumber than a door knob

very quaint town off of 55. there football team was horrible probably best its gone. Carlinville has a town square and a friggin huge court house that was once supposed to be the capital but fell thru.

they participate in a federal work study program (I believe the only one in the country of its kind), where every student has to work and gets money for it.

They had the oldest qb in the ncaas when I was at IC and was in his 30's I believe.

former morris and Joliet jack hammers GM set, I believe what was, the all time ncaa record for sacrifice bunts while there

I have known several people that graduated from there, from rural to urban and all enjoyed there time there.

my opinion of the place is it is probably more for the more organized and serious student then the I just need a degree student. I don't think it is quite Olivet in its social life but I think to find any "social" life, non school events you have to go off campus. I think its pretty good school and known for its work program and although the enrollment Is damn small, seems to generate some good candidates. with the work program it is the least expensive private school in IL. like most privates in the area I am guessing it is affliated with the Presbyterian church.

real scenic in that area, at least I really like it, worth a visit. but I will warn you, don't speed in Macoupin county. they don't play games. they will give tickets for not much over, at least that's how it used to be.

thanks wilky. your input is appreciated.
