4 College Senior

Health & Safety: As far as I know we have only had 1 or 2 campus crimes. I feel safe on campus. There are cameras all over the campus.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The school is very helpful in finding the students off campus housing.

3 College Senior

Athletics: We do not have a football team. We are a small town. Some people do participate in extracurricular activities but not a big portion of the students, we need more school spirit.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of fast-food restaurants close by. There are not a whole lot of sit down restaurants in Bluefield, but you can drive to a town called Princeton which is about a 20 minute drive on interstate.

3 College Senior

Parking: At times it is difficult to find any parking spots. You just have to get there early.

3 College Senior

Transportation: If you live in Bluefield they do have public transportation (a bus) which runs but not sure what the schedule is.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: There is no big city and not a lot to do like other places. The town of Bluefield is currently trying to find solutions to draw people back to Bluefield.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Apply on time for financial aid. Talk to the financial aid office to see if they can be of any help.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: Bluefield State is a commuter college where a lot of students live off campus. Although, they do have a Residence Hall now where some students do live, but it is not on campus. I am not really to familiar with the Residence Hall, nor am I familiar with going to bars and clubs so I really cannot provide any information on this subject.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: I have not seen or heard of anyone using drugs.

4 College Senior

Computers: There are a lot of computers to use on campus and we have several labs. In one of the labs the computers are not as up to date as other two computer labs and they can be very slow, but I am thankful for them having the computers available for us to use.

3 College Junior

Weather: the weather effects us greatly, because the roads are simply built on mountains. it is very hard to get around at times when it snows.

College Sophomore

Facilities: I haven't actually started the program/had a grade yet.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Bluefield State has different ethnicities from all over the world. People are very good at welcoming them into their group(s) of friends. The campus is made up with people who come from different religions, economic backgrounds, religion.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The accountancy program is one of the best. It is a nationally accredited program, so no matter where you go, a job can be waiting on you. They give you chances to be an intern either locally or with the Walt Disney World Internship program.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Bluefield State has a small campus environment. You get to know and talk with your professors. Registration is quick and simple to go through. Bluefield State is a very good school to go to and continue your education.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: SOmetimes you have a hard time finding a employee that can help.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus but I have heard that conditions are good

Academics: BSC is very limited in its academic offering. Unless you want to be an engineer or a nurse, this probably isn't the right place for you.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: This is truely four seasons country. We see it all. At the beginning of the week, it might be rainy, then bright and sunny by the next day and snowy by the end of the week.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The computer labs are great but trying to find a spot in a lab is impossible.

1 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: This is Bluefield, WV we're talking about. There isn't really much to do expect go to the mall or go to Wal-Mart.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene isn't a huge problem. A lot of people smoke weed but it doesn't really cause a distraction or problem on campus.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The process of getting into the nursing program is slightly difficult. The main things are filling out the application specifically for the nursing program, and taking the TEAS test. The most important/required criteria is having a 2.8 high school GPA or higher, passing Chemistry with a "C" or higher (Chemistry may be taken in high school or college. Either will count towards the pre-reqs required), and passing the TEAS test. The most difficult thing is passing the TEAS test. There are not any abnormal processes. I recommend taking a year to do pre-reqs before actually doing the program. It looks better when applying.

3 College Junior

Academics: the programs at BSC is excellent. You have knowledge after the classes once you graduate. I went to school at BSC and graduated in 2002 and came back for a different degree because the program value is great.
