Bluefield College Academic Days (Open House)

On November 2nd and 9th – 12th   Bluefield State College will be hosting Academic Days (Open House) attached is a flyer about the event and is open for all prospective students.  Faculty will provide a “front row seat” to the majors in their school. Students will be able to ask questions of the experts and receive a tour of the school.  More importantly students gain knowledge of how their interests translate into a major, major translates into a degree, and degree translates into a career.

 

Students and parents who wish to attend must pre-register online at www.bluefieldstate.edu. Students are responsible for their transportation to and from the college.

 

Each Academic Day begins with check-in at 9:00 AM in Dickason Hall on the Bluefield campus. Each day should conclude by Noon.

 

Students should register for the academic day corresponding with their major of interest. Only majors by the applicable school will be discussed and presented on that specific academic day.

For example, a student interested in Psychology or Criminal Justice would attend the School of Arts & Sciences academic day.  Nursing will not be covered on the School of Arts & Sciences day.

 

Bluefield State College will provide an “absence from school excuse” slip to each student in attendance as verification of attending the academic day.
