    Great for these types of students

    Blue Mountain College is a great college for anyone who is seeking to grow in Christ and gain more fellowship with others. The Bible program at this school is incredible. Blue Mountain College is also good for the students who want to learn as much as they can without having to travel far away or go to a huge state college.

    Tips for prospective students

    Being a freshmen, I wished someone had given me a few tips, so I will gladly give other people tips. My first tip would to be not afraid to talk to other people. Everyone there is very friendly and willing to help, so if you have a question go ahead and ask. The teachers are also willing to help, all the student has to do is show up to class and pay attention. Taking notes, asking questions, turning in assignments on time will all help you to get on a teachers good side in order to get more help with the subject. My last tip would be to go to the CAL. The CAL is the center of advancement learning. It is completely free and allows the use of computers and tutors for almost every subject. This is an extreme help for all freshmen.

    Bang for the buck

    For being a private Christian college, Blue Mountain is pretty cheap and easy to pay for. There are a number of different scholarships, grants, and loans each student can take out. With a few visits to the Office of Financial Aid, each student will be able to find the best way for them to be able to pay for their semesters.

    Am enjoying being here

    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.

    Am learning a lot

    Having only been attending Blue Mountain College for one year, it is difficult to fully explain their academics programs; but I can say that there was a quite noticeable change in what I learned in high school from what I learned in college. Not only did I grow in my knowledge, specifically in Biology, but I grew drastically in my relationship with Christ. Going to BMC, I realized that I did not know everything there was to know about God, and I was not as close with Him as I thought I was. I cannot explain the happiness I got from growing in Christ and my knowledge. I always prided myself on the facts I knew about Biology, and now I see that there is so much more to learn.

    Students searching for a small college with small class sizes. Also students who are searching for a Christian atmosphere and want to get the most out of the academic experience.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go in with a good attitude and study hard. When you graduate from BMC, you've graduated from one of the best!

    Bang for the buck

    This is a private college and therefore a tad bit more expensive. However, prices aren't outrageous and the college works with you on when and how you pay.

    Am enjoying being here

    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.

    Am learning a lot

    This college is a great small college with a Christian atmosphere. Small classroom sizes and a great education program make this college outstanding.

    Campus Safety

    This is the best part about being located in a small town. I have always felt safe on campus, matter what time of day. They are also there if you ever lock your keys in your car!

    Great for these types of students

    BmC is known for their education and ministry programs so it is ideal for students going into these professions. However our college is growing so several other majors are offered.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Instead of having Greek life, BMC has socitirs for men and women. Each society comes with their own traditions and history. All students, commuters and residents are given the opportunity to choose the society of their choice.

    Bang for the buck

    You're getting a great education and resume builder for slightly more than you would at Coleman Miss. I definitely think it is well worth the cost of tuition.

    What to do for fun

    Blue Mountain is a small town so most things shut down by 9. However, the school is really good about providing activities for students on and off campus. There are also several places to hang out ob campus.

    Food and Dining

    The food on campus is something to be desired, however, the dining hall is a great place to spend tine with friends and catch up. It also generally a place for good spontaneous entertainment from other students.

    Dorm Life

    Living on campus was a great experience for me. Although everyone is pretty genuine, BMC did a great job of placing me with a roommate that I got along well with and am still friends with today. The dorms are cozy and provide students with a good home away from home feeling.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are challenging but well worth it. I am in the elementary education program and I am confident that I will be provided with the skills and knowledge necessary to become a great teacher. I am also aware that an education degree from Blue Mountain looks excellent on a resume.

    Tips for prospective students

    Since Blue Mountain is considerably smaller than most colleges the teachers have an opportunity to get to know you as a person and not simply as a number so I highly recommend that you attend class regularly. Communication with professors is also important because most are more than happy to help you out.

    In three sentences

    Blue Mountain is an excellent school for students looking for small classes and professors that take an interest in their students. The location, set in a small town, is a perfect spot away from distractions, unlike larger colleges in the area. The campus is beautiful and historic, yet provides all of the academic needs of a student in 2012.

    What to do for fun

    Get involved with the societies. There's always something to do on campus. If there isn't, groups of people will just get out and do something on their own.

    Food and Dining

    The food is really good. There's something for everyone there.

    Dorm Life

    It's nice and comfy and very homey.

    Academic Rigor

    They have the best academics.

    Tips for prospective students

    Blue Mountain is the perfect school for you if you like small Christian campuses. You'll fit in no matter who you are. Get involved in any way you can with the BSU.

    In three sentences

    It has a beautiful campus and loving faculty and students. It has Christian values that it lives by. Everyone is nice to you no matter if they know you or not.

    I will admit there are some things that could change to make Blue Mountain more pleasurable, but the opportunities alone make this campus so wonderful. It holds on to the traditional morals and values the history of the school, but this campus is not out-dated. It is maintained properly with care and concern for the present occupants and those to come in the future to Blue Mountain. Those who have left Blue Mountain often return to visit or pay tribute to the campus and I believe that many in the future will do the same.

    What to do for fun

    There is always something going on on campus between the three girls societies, two guys societies, intramural sports, basketball, baseball, track and field, softball, tennis, chorale concerts, theater productions, Baptist Student Union and Student Body Association events. The SUB and Gal-ry have become popular gathering spots with the SUB's televisions, ping pong tables and pool table, then the workout equipment and the Mountain Fountain coffee shop newly founded in Gal-ry. It is easy to keep busy on the mountain, but if you want to get off campus Tupelo it is about 45 minutes away.

    Food and Dining

    Blue Mountain has been making changes recently to improve the meal quality, which has proven to be a success in several areas. There are options such as the salad bar, pizza making station, sandwich station, ice cream, and then the food line where they offer a different meat and vegetable at every meal. They have recently added a soda machine and peach mango tea. Occasionally they hold special banquets for specific groups, but the dining hall is generally a good setting to meet up with friends.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms provide an adequate amount of space, but do not provide much storage. Maintenance men work during the day and will fill repair request in a timely manner. Girls are not allowed upstairs in the boys dorms and boys are not allowed upstairs in the girls dorms, unless they are moving in or have been giving permission by the dorm resident (or dorm mom/dad). Quiet hours are generally followed and are heavily enforced during the week of finals. The dining hall fee is currently included with the housing fee. The dorm president has formed events such as movie nights for girls to get together for a short period of time to relax outside of their room without feeling as though they were still at school. Overall the dorms are nice.

    Academic Rigor

    Each professor is passionate regarding their area of expertise and strive to relate it to both the student taking a class as a general requirement and the student majoring on that particular subject. Blue Mountain uses older and methods of teaching such as lecturing, research papers, essays, Blackboard assignments, speeches, PowerPoint presentations and more. Each teacher uses what that believe is ideal for their students and often make adjustments depending on the needs of the students and the course requirements.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take advantage of every opportunity that strikes any interest. It will make adjusting to campus life more enjoyable because you will find people that you are compatible with and being active in school will aid in finding the right job in the future. Do not hide out in your dorm room all of the time. College is stressful so take the time to unwind at events going on around campus. Try new things. Whether it is food or an activity, try to branch out and develop your character a little with your new environment. It makes coping easier and maybe even enjoyable. Plan study times. It is easy to get wrapped up in homework and other activities, but too much of either can take away from the best of your college experience. Organization will help decision making as things come up.

    In three sentences

    Blue Mountain College is a great place to gain experience in various opportunities. They present opportunities that are not only relevant to your major, but also those that are compatible to one's interests and help to develop social skills. Blue Mountain is focused on the interests and goals of the students which is evident in the encouragement and servitude of the faculty and staff.

    Campus Safety

    I have never felt unsafe here. The security officers are super nice and go above and beyond. They are even there when you lock the keys in your car (=

    Clubs and Activities

    Variety of majors are offered for students, but the top notch programs are the ministry program and education.

    Great for these types of students

    Students pursuing a career in ministry/education

    Bang for the buck

    BMC offers the students the opportunity to attend a private institution with Christian values for about the same amount as a public university. It is a great bargain and one cannot put a price on the opportunity to attend/the experiences one has at BMC!

    What to do for fun

    Society rush nights/pledge nights in the fall are tons of fun. Each society has a fun night planned for the girls/guys and it's a memorable experience one remembers throughout his/her time at BMC. Pledge night allows the females to dress up and pick their society which becomes a sisterhood and close knit group of close friends! Basketball games are where most of the student body is when BMC is playing at home. The student section is one of the best places to sit. The student body has no problem showing their Topper pride!

    Food and Dining

    The quality of the food served varies by the day, but overall, not bad choices. For students desiring something other than the main course or vegetarian/vegan options, there is a pizza bar, Panini maker, and salad/fruit bar.

    Dorm Life

    Stevens is definitely the better of the two female dorms. It is more modern and the dorms have an extra room which is used as a study room. Whitfield, however, feels more close knit. There are always people hanging out in the parlors and they are very welcoming.

    Academic Rigor

    My major, elementary education, has a very challenging course load, but I have no doubt I will be a well prepared educator upon graduation. The professors definitely have knowledge on the subjects they teach and unlike other universities, they genuinely care and desire to see students succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students definitely need to get involved through the BSU, societies, or even clubs based on their major. Never be afraid to speak to somebody; you'll more than likely walk away with a new friend! Do not be afraid to ask your professors for help. Most are very caring and understanding and desire for students to succeed. Always remember your experience at BMC is what you make it (=

    In three sentences

    This is the ideal college for students desiring a close knit college community and desiring to receive a Christ-based education. Strong programs in education and ministry make BMC the ideal place for one seeking a degree in those fields.
