My name is Mark Hipes, I am the Director for Alumni Relations here at Bluefield College. I am fortunate to have enjoyed a rich history with our beloved alma mater. After transferring to Bluefield from community college, I graduated in the spring of 2003 with a degree in Christian studies and a minor in psychology. While at Bluefield, I was involved in many different organizations such as the Baptist Student Union, Student Ambassadors, Resident Hall Council, Phi Mu Delta fraternity, and Intercollegiate Baseball. I returned to my alma mater in 2006 to begin working in enrollment management. After 7 years in admissions, I now have the opportunity and honor to serve our, almost, 9,000 alumni that live around our commonwealth, our country, and our world. My goal is to assist in fostering a continual and meaningful relationship between the College and our alumni.
