Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act

On November 8, 1990, the President of the United States signed into law the Student Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act. Considered a consumer rights statute, the Act requires colleges and universities to report graduation rates of all students as well as those of student athletes. In addition, schools must report certain campus crime statistics and campus security procedures. These statistics are available on the Blinn College web site. For questions contact the Office of the Senior Vice President of Student Services for the Brenham, Schulenburg, and Sealy campuses and the Dean of Student Success on the Bryan Campus.

Blinn College Alma Mater

Dear College we, our hearts to thee have holden
By loyal love for each familiar scene,
Our faithful pledge to thee is ever golden
On our dear Blinn the sun of glory beams
Our song to thee we raise in joyous praise,
Our song to thee we raise in praise.

The children we, our love and pride confessing

Within thy walls we find a pleasant home;
And may strive to bring a greater glory
To crown thee now, and thro’ years to come,
And may we strive to bring a greater glory

To crown three now, thro’ the years to come.
