The restoration of student housing on the campus of Bluefield State College gained momentum today Diversified Energy Company granted and released to the College two parcels of real estate adjacent to the site of the new housing. Diversified Energy Corporation President/CEO Paul Nester presented a gift deed to Bluefield State College President Robin Capehart, whereby the real estate situated between Rock Street, Rorrer Street, and Pulaski Street becomes the property of the College.
The property will be repurposed as a parking lot for BSC students. The signing ceremony on the Bluefield State campus comes as site preparation work is transforming the Harris-Jefferson Student Center south parking lot for construction of Heritage Village. The project, when completed, will mark the return of student housing to the College’s campus for the first time in more than a half-century.
