I love Bluefield! It is really awesome here. As a general rule everyone is friendly and the professors are great too! Academic life is good, you can almost always find someone to study with! The social life is decent too, there aren't drinking parties on campus and I have never attended an off campus party. There is still always something going on here at school though. Whether it's a game, dance movie or turkey bowling you can stay pretty active. I love Bluefield and I'd never want to go anywhere else!

Apartments Are Expensive but Handy! There are many ups and downs to off campus housing. The prices are realitivly good and you feel like you are saving money by living off campus; but when you calculate the other expenses such as food and gas to get to campus it is not such a great deal. Also, saftey on campus is very good but throughout the rest of the community it is not so great! I feel much safer on campus than out in the community!

Because of it's Baptist affiliation there are certain rules the college has that most colleges do not such as being a "dry campus," visitation hours, required Christian studies credit hours for graduation, and required convocation credits for diploma. The atmosphere of the college is extremely homey, everyone knows everyone; and because it's a small campus, you get the know professors at a personal level. All the faculty are there to help you succeed. As far as activities, the campus is surrounded with green space for lots of hiking. Students have to make their own fun on campus though since it is a very small town.
