If you like rudeQuite BrightNursing
If you like rude administrative people, a facility that takes all your money and gives nothing in return (doesn't give any money back for withdrawing a single class), or unorganization, then this is the place for you! Oh.....and if you're white, you even get treated worse!

I see the college's strength as a stepping-stoneNot so brightElectrical Engineering
I see the college's strength as a stepping-stone i.e. a place for students from a poor area to become acclimated to academia without having to break the bank. Because it is not rigorous, general education requirements can be satisfied while keeping one's GPA at acceptable levels for scholarships.

Addressing a few of my rankings:

-The faculty are reasonable and accessible, the key is to address concerns before they become problems.

-The school does not have the funds to be creative, innovative, &c. On a similar note, the grounds have a very Soviet ethos, but they are in reasonable condition.

-Be advised it is de-rigeur for the locals to carry knives. The school would have gotten a F for safety if it was not for the ever-vigilant parking patrol.

-The school, in light of its monetary paucity, does a reasonable job of utilising its resources.
-It is small enough so that one can develop a rapport among the faculty.
-The surrounding city is in ruins, and the fact that the local can live there is a testament to their ability to endure hardship. Frequent trips to Christiansburg and Roanoke are advised to avoid cabin fever.

A few proposals for the school:

-Expand the use of online classes for general education requirements
-A bit of colour never hurt things, I hear coloured paints cost as much as off-white
-Permit placing out via examination
-Do not be afraid to experiment or shake things up a wee bit-Hire the Saudi students to cook part-time

Horrible "College"!Quite BrightOther
Horrible "College"! If you want to go to a trash dump, it's nicer than this mistake. This school is so boring to the infinity power. Not that the school work is challenging or anything, but the school itself is an eyesore: delapidated buildings, not enough classes offered, and arrogant, unfriendly students. The computers and every room in the college are obsolete. Most of the people that go here are from in-state and are rednecks. Tuition is cheap, however, but don't be influenced by that single factor! Admissions is a joke here. To be a liberal arts college, one would think that the school would be somewhat competitive...not BSC. The dumbest people go here. To get in, although I suggest not applying, do really bad on the ACT and have a low high school GPA. If you do bad on the ACT/SAT, you will still get in!! Some of the teachers, however, have been wonderful. Reputation: A degree from here isn't worth the paper it's written on. If you want a competitive degree, go to WVU or Marshall University in WV. I am transferring away from this horrible torture chamber.
