4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We pride ourselves on academic excellence, and that is shown through the courses at blue mountain. Many of the classes are on a 5 point grading scale instead of a 10 point grading scale, and require a great deal of writing and studying. The professors are very qualified (even overqualified) and if you pay attention you will learn a lot.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every department requires an internship before graduation. This provides great face to face resources and experience for graduates looking for jobs.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We do not have Greek Life, but instead Societies. There are two boys and three girls societies on campus and you chose whichever society you wish to rush. No competition at all.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Many of the athletes on campus are on scholarship. While our athletics are not the best, they are not the worst and a large majority of campus supports basketball and baseball.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Many people either love on campus or commute from home. While there are 4 apartments reserved for college students behind campus, many of them are rented by residents who are not students. There is an apparent village across the street from the campus, but it had a reputation of being very unsafe.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: 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.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus prides itself on being very strict while somethings go unnoticed. Visitation hours in dorms of the opposite sex are very strict and enforced. Attendance policy is so strict it is ridiculous. However, many of the alcohol and drug use problems go either unnoticed or uninforced. BMC states clearly that campus is strict on it's alcohol and drug policy but as a resident, I'm 100% positive that the illicit substances clause in the honor code is completely swept under the rug.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I transferred late summer for the Fall 2014 term, so I missed the scholarship deadline, but I know many people who are on scholarship at BMC. One good thing about the scholarship program is that BMC gives out more scholarships than Oprah gives out new cars.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dinning hall staff tries really hard to create healthy meals. Notice I said "tries". While I appreciate the effort the cafeteria staff puts in to cooking meals, one can only have dry fish and chicken so many nights a week. Because the closest town is 15 minutes away (give or take), many students choose to stay on campus to eat. Ray Dinning Hall is the only meal option, however there has been speculation that in years to come another cafeteria/food option will be available to students and faculty.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: 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.

Athletics: During basketball season, students are very supportive of the team and the gym is packed on game nights.

Academics: I am an elementary education major. The program really does prepare for you a career as a teacher and ensures this is really what you want as a career as it provides multiple opportunities for observation and teaching experiences. The facilities have recently been redone and are very nice.

Scholarships: Easy paperwork to fill out for scholarships, but some scholarships did require some essays or letters of recommendation. Sometimes I did have to keep calling to ensure the funds were applied to my student account, but other than that, I had no issues.

Campus Housing: Best option for girls is Stevens by far. At least you get to control the temperature of your dorm room in that building. However, Whitfield is more social than Stevens, at least to me.

Overall Experience: For elementary education, students have many opportunities because local schools love BMC grads and know they will be well prepared to do their job well.

Diversity: we have a number of nationalities but mostly white Americans on campus. it is a Christian college so it is generally fairly conservative. People get along well even though different views about various issues are present. there are some homosexuals on campus but they are generally well liked, and people treats them just like anyone else. of course there are the bad apples on campus who treat them with disrespect, but as far as majority goes even if the lifestyle isn't agreed with, love is still shown to them.
