Bluefield College is a wonderful place to be. Everyone, including students and faculty, are kind. They are willing to do anything to help you.
Tips for prospective students
Apply for a lot of scholarships. Going to a private school does cost more because it is not government funded. Scholarships are not easy to get from outside sources.
Academic Rigor
The classes vary in rigor. But, all the teachers are willing to help you at all times. Plus, there is free tutoring for all students.
Dorm Life
Not terrible, but could use some paint. I live in one of the older buildings so it could use some work, but my room is still pleasent and comfortable.
Food and Dining
Some days are better than others. There are a lot of options for food so you aren't stuck eating just one thing.
What to do for fun
There are a lot of on campus activities to do through out the week. The sporting events are always fun as well. There is not a lot to do around Bluefield, but you make a lot of friends by having nothing to do.
Bang for the buck
Worth it completely. It's a great place to get an education. The teachers really care about all of the students.

Every year the students have Mud Pig day. This is a day of fun where the students have a giant slip and slide and special activities.
Great for these types of students
Anyone who is seeking an education in a Christian environment would love Bluefield College.
Clubs and Activities
