You create the atmosphere that you want, whether it be negative or positive. The coursework is not too challenging, and if you are not an athlete, I suggest you look elsewhere. This district is strictly rural, and there is not much variety for shopping or entertainment. Walmart is the most convenient option.
Bluefield College is decent for athletes, finding internships and learning about different sorts of people through bonds, the only thing that could improve is the outlet for entertainment.
The best about the dorms was you were 5 minutes from class, other then that you were sleeping in an 1940's jail cell. The students there did not really socialize unless you were pretty much into drugs or drinking (which I do not do). They had a Starbucks that you could use your money to buy stuff, lunch swipes or the flex money given to us. I give it three dots because at least I had somewhere to lay my head
