While there are improvements that needs to be made physically at Blue Mountain, my short experience at this college has taught me so much about myself. Most of the faculty are willing to help, eager to inspire, and anxious to further professionalism in their students. If Blue Mountain made some beautification elements, added more efficient academic facilities and technology, and created a less rivalrous atmosphere between contrasting departments. There is no doubt this would be the best institution in the nation. Students care about their community, each other, and campus... And many of the frustrations we have for BMC is because we want to see our institution thrive like we know it has the ability to.

Academically, BMC is amazing. Many of the professors are extremely qualified (some overqualified) and you really learn a lot from them. With that being said, there are some things that need work. Many of the buildings on campus are in need of repair. The sportsplex that was intended to be compete this year is still a giant hole in the ground. The alumni house is painted but still in a state of dilapidation. Many of the monetary things have been focused recently too much on athletics rather than academic excellency, which needs to change. At Blue Mountain, there isn't much of a social life, because the college itself is located in the middle of nowhere. People are very nice, friendly, and willing to help at BMC. One other great things about campus is the proximity to everything. Because campus is so small and condensed in one area, there is a great ease to get from one place to another.

BMC sits smack dab in the middle of two county seats. Ripley is the closest city and that's where most of the student body goes for off campus dinning and shopping. Ripley's food is decent. Most of it consists of taco bell, McDonald's, KFC, ect. And a few authentic Mexican restaurants. Because this is the south, vegetarian/vegan dishes are highly rare because we believe in the "kill what's on your plate scenario". If you get hungry late at night, that sucks for you because almost every restaurant in Ripley shuts down at 10pm, minus Dodges Gas Station.
