Commencement is a milestone – one of life’s landmark occasions, a time when graduates, family members, and friends gather to celebrate past and future.

At Bluefield State College, Commencement is a festive, campus-wide event at which graduates are recognized and honorary degrees are conferred.  

The 2016 Spring Commencement speaker for Bluefield State College will be announced in late March and posted on this site, along important dates to remember.  It’s our goal to make this a truly memorable day for you – and those who supported you along the way.  Best wishes from all of us at BSC.   We look forward to celebrating with you at Commencement as we honor our graduating students.
