One of the best ways to get involved in college life is through membership in a club or organization. Organizations open many doors to students including opportunities for leadership, community service, social activities, career networking, not to mention friendship and fellowship.
Bluefield College Office of Student Activities recognizes many student clubs and organizations. With interests ranging from Greek life to the Appalachian Trail Club, there are numerous organizations to fit any student's interests. Or, consider starting a club or organization and seek student activities recognition!
Bluefield College recognizes Greek organizations can be a valuable component of the undergraduate experience. These organizations maintain, as their primary purpose, the enhancement of the learning and growing process. Through activities encouraging leadership development, organization management, interpersonal and group dynamics, social awareness, philanthropic spirit, College loyalty, and career orientation, they have earned the privilege of College recognition. Greek organizations are self-perpetuating fraternities and sororities attempting to fulfill the total co-curricular needs of their members in a self-directed and self-governing manner. Membership in Greek fraternities and sororities is not limited to any department at Bluefield College and is drawn exclusively from the undergraduate student body. Bluefield College is host to two local fraternities and two local sororities. These organizations regularly sponsor service activities, intramural teams, social events, and other programs.
