Founded in 1873 as a Christian liberal arts college and affiliated since 1920 with the Mississippi Baptist Convention, Blue Mountain College assists students in developing intellectual integrity, academic excellence, social awareness, and Christian character. To accomplish the mission the College recruits undergraduate and graduate students who are committed to scholarship, servant leadership, and service in church and community. The student-centered campus exhibits a climate of personal attention, respect, inclusion and high expectations. With the leadership of professionals who share the common bond of Christian faith and who are committed to excellence, students are guided to reach their God-given potential.
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.Read More
