    Although, there isn't much to do in the actual town of Blue Mountain, I've befriended many people and have had a great time.

    In the town of Blue Mountain, there honestly is not a lot of places to go or things to do. Luckily, Blue Mountain College itself has such a beautiful campus that most people stay outside and enjoy the sun and scenery. There are moments when people do get sick of the campus and want to leave, when this occurs people are able to drive to Ripley, New Albany, and Tupelo for many different places to go to. One of my favorite things about Blue Mountain College is that it is smaller than most schools. It actually gives people a better chances of making more friends. Making friends is not hard to do at all here at Blue Mountain. Ask anyone on the campus and they will tell you just how friendly everyone is to each other. There are so many other great qualities of Blue Mountain College, all of which can be noticed during a visit to the school.
