At first I liked Bluefield college because it was a small school near home. I have grown to dislike it now due to personal reasons. The school is a good place to go if you're SUPER religious, you have to attend chapel 10 times a semester for credits like it's required. If you're the type of person that likes small colleges and colleges that give you that high school feel than Bluefield is a perfect choice for you.
Review Bluefield College
I enjoyed having Christian teachers. I do question some of the colleges values as truly Christian. The program needs to be restructured to assist the adult learner attempting to manage a family, a home, a career, and college.
I think Bluefield was a really good college for my first year. It is small, close to home, and the professors are amazing and supportive. Honestly, besides the professors, I don't have a lot of good to say about BC. The required chapel attendance is difficult for commuters sometimes, the curriculum is limited, and if you are planning to transfer a lot of the core classes are pointless to take. The education and English departments are GREAT. With such wonderful, intelligent professors I wish Bluefield had the means to offer more in-depth courses.
