I think Bluefield College has been growing over the years; however, there are some aspects they need to advance in. Recently there has been changes regarding the clothing policy that majority of the students disagrees with. The administrators aren't listening to the students and taking their thoughts into consideration. Overall, I believe Bluefield is a good school but they have some things that need to be changed.

I was dual enrolled at Bluefield College online for three years. I was able to graduate with my Associate's Degree at the age of 17. The value of the classes was superb, and for the most part, I liked all my classes and professors. The faculty was always quick to answer questions and rectify problems, and the professors were gracious, understanding, and willing to help in any way they could. I enjoyed my time at Bluefield Online and would certainly recommend it to others.
The thing that I like most about Bluefield College is that the faculty/staff always treats me and others with respect and kindness. Also, I love the atmosphere location of Bluefield College, being surrounded by the Appalachian Mountains is amazing. As of right now I do not think I would change anything about Bluefield College so far.
