Article Calls Bluefield College a "Waste of Money"

Posted:

BLUEFIELD (WVVA)- An article posted on theatlantic.com lists Bluefield College as one of the least valuable colleges in the nation.  

The author used data from a pay scale web site. The web site gathers data from graduates who self report their earnings.

Bluefield College is listed as number four.

Dr. David Olive, President of Bluefield College says "There is no statistical sampling of community. It just began to be clear that this could've been one graduate who responded or just a handful but yet it casts a light onto the entire reputation and the quality of the education at Bluefield College. So it made me quite suspicious from the beginning."

Dr. Olive sent out a letter to students with data supporting his statement. He a long with students say they aren't fazed by the article.
