Your admissions counselor will be with you through every step of becoming a Bluffton
University student. From answering your questions as you first start to explore Bluffton,
to celebrating with you as you make your decision to become a Bluffton University
student. You are encouraged to contact your counselor as you need!
Most of us attended Bluffton, so we can tell you what student life is like from first-person
experience. Interested in hearing from a student? You will likely be called by a student
from our office or, if you come for a visit, a student will lead you and your family
on a campus tour. Take advantage of these times to ask any questions you might have.
