College History
   Bluefield State College was established as a black teachers college by an act of the West Virginia Legislature in 1895
and was integrated after 1954. By the 1960's the College had a comprehensive four-year program of teacher education,
arts and sciences, and engineering technology. Gradually a variety of two-year technical programs evolved in response
to local needs.
   Bluefield State College has emerged as a four-year state supported commuter college serving south-eastern West Virginia
with a primary thrust in the direction of career and technical two and four year programs. The liberal arts offerings
of the College are focused to enhance its unique mission.
