Bluefield College will host a series of Open House events for prospective college students who are interested in a liberal arts education in a Christ-centered environment focused on servant leadership.
In fact, three open houses have been scheduled on the BC campus for prospective students, including a Winter Open House, Saturday, February 17; a Spring Open House, Saturday, April 7; and a Spring Night on the Hill, which is an overnight event, Sunday and Monday, April 15-16.
During Winter Open House, Saturday, February 17, potential students are invited to tour the BC campus, meet a variety of faculty from various academic disciplines, interact with current students, take part in a Student Activities Fair, attend a Financial Aid Workshop, and meet with admissions counselors.
“The purpose of our Open House events is to allow prospective students and their families to come to campus and experience everything Bluefield College has to offer,” said Matthew Hamilton, director of traditional admissions. “Our Open Houses allow prospective students and their families to get a small taste of the Christ-centered liberal arts education we provide here at Bluefield College.”
Jordan Dillon, BC’s campus visit and enrollment coordinator, agreed, noting that students who participate in an Open House have a chance to learn more about not only Bluefield College studies, but the BC mission.
“Open House events showcase the school,” said Dillon, “and give prospective students valuable information that will aid them in making an admissions decision.”
BC’s Spring Open House, Saturday, April 7, will follow the same format as Winter Open House, offering identical events and opportunities for prospective students. Both events will begin with registration at 9 a.m., followed by a welcome session, admissions and financial aid assemblies, a BC 360 session with current students, campus tours, an Academic and Student Organizations Fair, and lunch.
The Spring Night on the Hill, Sunday and Monday, April 15-16, will give prospective students a chance to learn more about what Bluefield College has to offer through an overnight, two-day adventure on campus. Night on the Hill will feature more than the average Open House, due to the extra day of campus life exposure.
In addition to the usual Open House activities, Night on the Hill will include an overnight stay in a residence hall, dining in the cafeteria, and the opportunity to attend two actual BC classes. Students will also have the chance to partake in student life and learn more about Bluefield with current BC students.
Prospective students interested in learning more or who would like to participate in any of the three open house events are invited to register online at bluefield.edu/visit or by contacting the BC Admissions Office by phone at 276.326.4231 or by e-mail at [email protected]
