If you attend Bluefield State willing to work hard, you will get an education that works for you for the rest of your career.

Here, each student is much more than a number. When you attend Bluefield State, people will know you. We expect excellence from our students, but we invest in you, work with you and inspire you to realize capability you never knew you had.

Students and alumni love this sense of community. “There is a real family atmosphere here,” one Bluefield State student said. “You feel comfortable speaking with faculty, seeking them out.”

Built into a mountainside, Bluefield State College understands uphill challenges. Yet a Bluefield State education is a process of discovery and refining—a discovery of skills, a refining of gifts, a journey to a mountaintop that reveals new horizons in our students’ lives.
