Very few people believe they are truly interesting, but we all have a story to tell.  At Bluffton University, the thread that weaves each student, faculty, staff, alumni and supporter’s story together is that we are all part of the larger Beaver family. We have different backgrounds, and we are all going different places, but Bluffton brings us together. The next few pages provide a snapshot of the stories that make Bluffton great and make us #BeaversAll. And because our Beaver family continues to grow, so will #BeaversAll. Like us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and watch as we continue to spread the #BeaversAll movement.
