This is my freshman year in college. I have been homeschooled my whole life, and the idea of going to a big state university scared me. When I found Blue Mountain I fell in love with the homey feel, the wonderful professors, and the beautiful campus. I have only been there for one semester and I can't imagine leaving.

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.
