I am not positive about this. I have not had to go to the central campus, which is where mostly everything big is held. I believe they do help students in some way to further themselves. I am just not sure what they do to help us. I know they do have workshop too.

IT is terrible. Really it is. I didnt learn anything, because the teachers dont know anything.

They suck. The teaching staff is not knowledgeable. The students are in their 40s and stupid as...I don;t even know. THis place sucks.

Pretty Fair – My written communication class is fantastic, the only problem is I have to turn in all my online quizzes in asap by September 11th, but I cant seem to find them.
On the other hand my Introduction to Microsoft Suits class, its very frustrating, everything is done online, but the teacher herself was not very thorough on how to use it or what to do, plus we need a specific program for the class which I do not have, and is not provided outside the school, for someone like me who has work all the time its very frustrating because I need to go INTO the school to get anything done. And I do not have the money to cough up for the program.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
A Tad Frustrating – I understand that this is something you have to do once a year, but lets just say the process is not very... user friendly? After completing my FAFSA and knowing I have to wait to get it, I was told afterwords that they do not take copies of your taxes for a loan I needed, and that I had needed to "link them" to my FAFSA and after successfully attaching my family members, it would not link up with my own. I went in to tell them so, showed them and they did end up helping me out, but by this time I was already half way though my first week of collage and I had NO BOOKS! causing me to be in a panic for having things be late. It did not help that my job was handing me extra hours so I had even less time to work on anything I needed for collage.

Just Fine – The computer network hasn't really had any major problems at this school. There are always computers available and they give you forewarning if something is going to be down because of maintenance.

Be Attentive – I personally have never taken an online course through Blackhawk, but in the past I have taken a few from a different college. Honestly make sure you pay attention to detail, especially when it comes to due dates and studying patterns. Online courses are great for working students who can't attend classes on campus and would benefit to being able to work at their own pace. Online courses aren't for everyone.

Hardworking People – Many students take classes, while having families, jobs and other responsibilities. The student body itself is actually quite diverse, different ethnic groups, ages and backgrounds are all represented at Blackhawk Technical College.

I have been lucky enough to get great teachers this semester. They're understanding, educated, and willing to work with you.

Adults Still Act Like Children – Some of the students are very disrespectful and rude. They're uncivilized and act as if they have no manners what so ever; There's no compassion.

Career Center – BTC's Career Center is lacking in support for students in this career guidance and what is available to the student.
College Junior 2012-03-26T21:08:29Z
Computer Labs – There are not enough computer labs for instructors to hold their classes in.
College Junior 2012-02-16T22:09:25Z
The student body is very diverse from ethnic groups to social class groups.

Athletic Center – BTC offers a small but nice work out center. They should expand it to put in more treadmills.

Intro to Sociology – Flexible, evening classes, no trick tests, good class discussions.

There is a lot of diversity at Blackhawk tech, age, ethinicity, types of people. This is a great school for displaced workers

They had scheduled activities every thursday during the normal lunch hour

The teachers were amazing, the classes were small enough to get one on one attention. The worst part is the parking, if you are not there first thing in the morning you have to walk a quarter mile to the building.

Not Horrible – The computer system and network were not horrible, but could be better.
Recent Alumnus 2011-12-02T19:52:41Z
Not Anything to Brag About – The online courses were not so simple. I found that the other students were helpful, and the teachers that I had were helpful and others were not at all. I learned how to incorporate my studies around my personal life well. As far as becoming a student that admissions were not helpful in assigning me to someone for help with my class schedule, which was very frustrating.

Get Em Before They're Gone – I am still trying to sign up for classes. It seems like they need some more people who know what they have to do.

It's Was Hard. i am a 44 year old black student in the mist of young people and the overall students are white. all in all i made it my home with the help of the people that work there.
Recent Alumnus 2011-07-13T16:58:10Z
Am Not Alone. there is someone always their to help out ,teacher or student. i was the only black student in my classes but for the most part the people were great .the work load was hard the teacher were fair. and when i found my grove it became easy. Hort and AG is not something you take lightly. at times i found myself crying ,and saying why am i doing this. but when all was said and done i have been standing on the high honors roll for 5 sem.

Getting to Classes. So far I have not started classes yet. But I did go in 2001 right outside of high school. Getting to classes wasn't too bad actually. I did have some classes that were across campus but I lucked out with having a break inbetween classes. I am going to try my best to schedule my classes that will suit me. That way I hope to not get too overloaded. I didn't have to transfer my credits but they did hold them from 2001 so I was able to continue where I left off. And yes that was a relief to me.
Recent Alumnus 2010-09-21T00:37:48Z
Fellow Students and Teachers. I would have to say the teachers are unique because they are very patient. Actually so are the other students which is a relief. There are other campuses throughout southern Wisconsin for example: Monroe Campus. There are a few online classes but it still seems like you are in the classroom. You can see your teacher actually on campus and they still take time to help.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
