Bluefield State College has one of the worst football program I’ve ever witnessed. There is no professionalism and the coaches here do not know what it makes to take care of a team and take care of their players. These coaches recruited players from all over the world. Keep in mind, these players quit their jobs and their future to come down here to “ have a better future with this team”. These coaches, promised these boys a future and chance to be good at something in life. Once these boys come down here , it’s all fun and games now. There is no team work. No team boundaries. These coaches treat these boys like dogs. Days before their first game after 41 years, these coaches told over 20 boys that they weren’t eligible to play. This is something they e known this whole time but kept dragging the boys along. Early morning practices , late night meetings just to tell them they aren’t even. Part of the team.
Bluefield State College is probably one of the worst college institution any student can commit to. Not only is it in a town of nothing, the professors are ridiculous. They do not know how to teach their students. A lot of these students are coming a long ways from home. Some even come from across to world to get an education from this horrible college. Not only are they paying a ridiculous amount towards tuition, these students are being forced to pay for programs they NEED to use to pass certain classes. These students are barely making a living as it is and they have to pay expenses to which the school should have already covered for. This is ridiculous and very unprofessional. Explains the small town mindset. They don’t care about your students, they don’t care if they succeed. These people care about how much money they bring into the institution.
Not one person at this college is competent or professional. My advisor NEVER answers my questions; sometimes he does not answer my emails at all. The "professors" should not be called such because they do not teach you anything. They give you a book and assignments; then tell you to do the work. They have tried to force me into classes I have no transportation to and act like I am a child. FYI: I am a grown woman, over the age of 30. NO ONE can make me do anything, yet every faculty member here tries to force their agenda on you. I have never dealt with professors that know less than I do; at Bluefield State, that seems to be the norm. I have fellow students asking ME for help with their assignments because the professors are useless. Why am I paying for a degree, when I should be already teaching classes?
All of my classes have been online. Unfortunately, this makes your teachers care less about you. They do not answer questions in a timely fashion, are often grammatically incorrect, and do not grade fairly.
I have all online classes and most of my teachers have been great. Some, however, are not very helpful or considerate with certain things. I have enjoyed everything else overall though.
I took majority of my classes online. Before the quarantine I had a couple of my classes in person. My online learning experience was good and I felt that the professors really cared and were understanding. My professors utilized proctoring sites, case studies, powerpoints, and recorded lectures to enhance our learning. I think the professors did a wonderful job at providing us with adequate resources and materials. My professors also utilized sites such as google hangout to video chat with students to make sure we understood the material and gave us a chance to ask questions. I found that to be very helpful.
Bluefield State is a good college and I feel like the professors care and help students as much as they can. I enjoy the online courses because they give me a more flexible schedule. My experience so far here has been good and I have enjoyed all of my course work.
Financial aid is messed up every year. For one reason or another, you won’t graduate on time. Professors up to this point, don’t actually teach you anything. They just tell you to self study which I understand is apart of college but what am I in class for if you don’t explain what I’m learning. If I had known what I know now when I applied I would’ve chosen a different school. Beckley campus seems to be better though.
I have found Bluefield State College to be so comforting. I am close to home, and get to have intimate small classes, and truly get to know my peers. The only change I wish to see take place at Bluefield State would be further commercialization on campus. Such as adding one or two fast food companies, and possibly a coffee shop.
The school is great. There is so much diversity. The campus is beautiful. We’re working on getting new dorms.
Bluefield State College is a small efficient college. They help every student on a one to one basis fulfilling all their admission needs. They are very professional and courteous. Academics are wonderful, the professors and courteous and very helpful and they are building a dormitory to accommodate more out of state students. Good safe, clean place to live.
My experience with Bluefield State College is exceptional. Bluefield state is very outgoing school that try its very best to get students to their satisfactory not only in school work but also with bonding with one another. The school also have a lot of activities and cookouts so students can feel welcome and comfortable at the school they’re in. The athletic department is very awesome as well. The coaches makes the athletes feel like they are at home and take care of the athletes like they are their own children
The professors are tremendous. They are extremely helpful, and they are there to help students achieve their goals.
Bluefield State College for the most part is an amazing college to attend. Few professors I've encountered don't exactly teach material, just tell you to read the book. Biggest issues lie with the financial aid and business offices. Scholarships, grants, never on time. Students, including myself, have to submit the same information and papers to the offices multiple times and have to constantly follow up with them to ensure it's getting processed. Other than these issues, I highly recommend this college.
The only thing I like about Bluefield State is their accessibility to tools to help students and their variety of groups and programs. But other than that, I personally do not like the school at all. Their handling of financial properties are terrible, and some of the curriculum from what I've done so far isn't always great and feels like there's not much help sometimes from teachers with the exception of library help. It just isn't the place to be.
A few of the things I like about Bluefield State College is the student to teacher ratio. On average it is 15:1 so class size is very similar to a high school class setting. Also, I like the professors there. They are very helpful, and they try to aid everyone in achieving their degrees or higher education. Lastly, I like the community feeling you have there. The college is not big at all so it feels like tight knit community. Everyone knows each other and the college is not hard to get around.
My freshman year was a success at Bluefield State College. I enjoyed that it is a small school and anytime you need help there is always someone willing to help you.
