Bluefield College is committed to providing a distinctively Christian environment where
students will find faculty and staff who genuinely care for their well-being. We encourage
students to use their unique, God given gifts and abilities. We seek to foster growth in the
areas of spiritual and emotional maturity, interpersonal relationships and social awareness,
coupled with intellectual life.
This is the spirit of the guidelines in this Handbook. They express our commitment to
educate men and women in the process of integrating their Christian faith with the learning
process. The guidelines also express our commitment to provide an atmosphere for study,
spiritual life and growth, personal exploration, and for encouraging involvement in the total
collegiate experience. Your enrollment in Bluefield College constitutes an agreement that
you will abide by the guidelines with a spirit of cooperation. It is expected that those who
take the Bluefield Challenge have evaluated the guidelines and made a conscious decision
to live by them.
