Bluefield State is a great college. To bad the politics in this area keeps it from being better.
I am talking about the sports program. Most colleges of BSC's stauts havd football programs.
Look at Bluefield College. They are restarting thier program. Why can't BSC?
Don't say it's an issue with money or grants. That is not a viable response. Build it back and they will come. I'm talking about dorms.
Just look around this area within a 50 mile radius--- Concord has Football, Bluefield College coming back.
Homecomings at BSC used to be something really special when they had football. Now homecoming isn't as special and one has to go to a baseball game( not knocking the sport or the team ) but come on how exciting is homecoming 1/2 time in a sport that has no 1/2 time activities.
If the powers that be want Bluefield and BSC to make Bluefield stronger BRING BACK BSC FOOTBALL!!!
That along with the already great classes being offered.
That's my take on it.

BSC Sucks, they don't have near as many qualified professors and their parking is a joke. Plus no one gives a crap about BSC football, do you think ESPN is going to cover even one of the games? I graduated from there 20 years ago and I turned down a teaching position, people with Bachelors of Science should not be qualified to teach. I also went to Tech and didn't have a single professor that you didn't call Doctor because they all had doctorates.

Then why did you go there for so long if BSC sucks? Seems like a waste of money if you graduated and turned down a teaching job. BSC is not on the same level as Tech granted but it is a great school. Thousands have graduated and gone onto very successful careers with the help of those professors that are qualified.
Sorry you were disappointed. I hope you have found your niche in life and a very successful career.
Not everybody has Tech kind of money and I am sure that there are plenty of students who are proud that they were able to get a good education and jobs because of BSC.
But hey I respect your opinion.
Football is but on component that BSC needs back and I hope someday those in a position to make it happen will bring it back.

BSC needs better professors
BSC needs PARKING
BSC needs dorms
BSC needs non-douchebag Security
BSC needs a crap load more but one thing is NOT to waste hundreds of thousands of dollars on a damn Football Team

Wow such anger being displayed on this topic. I thought BSC grad had some good points.
Farley has some good points too but to call security names you must have had a bad experience with them.
Sports like football brings in money and when you bring in money that way it sort of brings thing in a reverse domino effect.
BSC has plenty of parking. one may have to walk a little bit between buildings.
They have very good professors-some better than others
They definitely need dorms- something that needs to be considered since they have applied for University status.
Bluefield as a town need to improve alot also if it wants to keep a viable educational source here.

Wow, you really can read a lot into things to see anger, are you a savant? or should I say Idiot Savant? BSC has terrible professors, everyone knows which professors give free passing grades and which ones actually teach. The security people have always been huge a-holes and 99% of student would agree. Hell, I had a professor that quit because of the security jerks hassling him. And parking is a joke, by walking a little bit do you mean a mile? The buildings are old and out of date with at least 2 of those buildings needing demolition. There is no audience for a Football team. The costs in buying the insurance, uniforms and upgrading that dilapidated stadium are far too high. They can't even make a profit on their crappy basketball team, face it, BSC sucks.

I thought that BSC was a joke school when I first enrolled, but to my suprise its actually a good college. The sports teams are on the bad side(Except for golf and tennis)but who cares really. If your playing BBall at BSC you dont have a future at the pro level anyway. As for parking, man get over having to walk a little. If you went to tech then Im sure you had to walk a little there, its a huge campus. The buildings at BSC are terrible but work is being done to make them more up to date. So you face it , everybody has their own opinion and yours is just another one nobody cares about.

I don't think it's bad there, I wonder about some of the teachers and they got rid of the bball coaches. I locked my keys in my car and the guy came and got them right out, was polite and wouldn't take any money for it.

I like waiting around in their parking lot and sniffing the seats of the cars after girls get out.

Whats is it you wonder about about the teachers, some are good, some are bad, some show up only for class, some show up to hit on the female students young enough to be their daughters, some don't remember why they show up, and some don't show up they send their students to the labs or library. The maintenance guys are the funny ones, especially the one that hides out in the library, and the one who hangs out in the basic parking garage. They get paid........

Maybe the abandoned houses on northside can be torn down and others relocated. The property could be bought by the college and they can begin on campus housing. The thing is if BSC grows then the Northside of Bluefield will slowly become better. The money will go to Northside the people will go to Northside. But the powers that be (white people) will not allow the people of Northside(black people and the ones that won't kiss ass of city officials)to gain the power in this little town.
