WHAT I LIKED

Bluefield state has a very good engineering department with lots of outside connections and involvement with surrounding I and manufacturing companies. All my engineering professors have masters and phd degrees or have extensive experience in the field.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Although they are working to add dorms, sports, and more of student life, the current setup of BSC is a commuter school so there is not much of a student campus life.

WHAT I LIKED

The makeup of students is 75% athletes which are great as an athlete.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some of the knit-picking rules on campus, mainly in the dining hall.

4.0

WHAT I LIKED

The small class sizes are always a bonus! You get to really know your professors and make a name for yourself.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There’s not a lot to do around here, which can be a blessing and a curse.

WHAT I LIKED

It is a small college but getting bigger. The sports teams are great. The support you receive from staff is good although miscommunication can happen. Campus life is great and the community as a whole is amazing.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Due to the large increase in size, there can be a lack of staff.
