"Since I've been here at Bluefield, I've had the opportunity to take several math courses. My experience of each course is nothing less than great. I enjoy the teaching styles that each professor brings to each course and I know that they want the best for us. One of my favorite parts of the program is the availability each professor has to offer. I like knowing as a student that when I need help, they are always there for me."
