Off-Campus Housing: i'm going to do it next year if that counts for anything

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: there are some extremely pretty girls and some terrible looking fat ones and no in-between

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Birmingham is a very subpar oasis in the middle of the south

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: very good safety on campus do to your in a gated community

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: at first you get the feeling they don't care until they start randomly fining you

College Freshman

Transportation: What transportation are you talking about? there is none

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: it is terrible living situation freshman year and no other options are available

4 College Freshman

Parking: there is parking everywhere most of the campus is asphalt

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: Nightlife at BSC is more hit or miss but most of the time nothing is there

3 College Freshman

Athletics: athletics are the main reason most kids are at BSC

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: pretty good greek life on campus its about the only place you'll find a party other than the apartments

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Decent amount of things to do.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: pretty good restaurants downtown but kinda pricey

3 College Freshman

Computers: they're not the best or newest but there is plenty of them all around campus

4 College Freshman

Weather: Being in Alabama, the weather is crazy bipolar, but campus adjusts accordingly most times.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Well, I'm a first year, so I stay in NewMens. It's crappy. But I love it because the vast majority of freshman guys stay here and its nothing to go to one of their rooms. Plus it's connected to the first year girls dorm which is great ;)

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The school is a southern, Christian, Private school. All of this taken into account, it is mainly upper middle class and upper class southern white kids. However, for the kids that don't fall into that category, it is alright. It is a pretty accepting campus.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There is vast access to computers, but most if not all students have their own personal computer or tablet. The Wi-Fi SUCKS but it gets the job done.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are drugs and alcohol on campus, but it's lower end stuff like weed, Adderall, and Oxy.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There is a lot of things to do in the city

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is no off campus housing unless you are a commuter student. All housing is on campus including apartments and many different dorms to choose from.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: As for things like campus safety and strictness, it's great. Campus Po pretty much stays out of the way until they are needed, but when they are called they are more than great.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I play football and it is mediocre, but for my friends that play other sports they love it. Also, we have Striplin Gym that's open to all students ans it's always going and is very nice.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is really nothing to do on campus except going to the Row, but since no one ever leaves campus, it can be fun. It's usually hit or miss. But since we live in a city, if you do venture off campus, there's plenty to do.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a lot of money but I'm having an issue with some grant that I was awarded being applied to my award letter, which is making my out of pocket cost go up.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

When people reflect on their college experience at Birmingham-Southern, they usually talk about what great opportunities they have access to, and what an outstanding education they're receiving. For the price of the school, there's got to be some kind of long-term benefit. It's no secret that if you graduate from BSC, then you're pretty much guaranteed to get a job in the metro area right out of college. Students also talk about the lifelong friendships they formed, and all the different kinds of people they met while at Southern. It's the kind of place that alumni love to come back to and reminisce about, as well as encourage their kids to come.

The whole school feels like one big family. While there are struggles, it seems as though everyone at BSC is looking to improve upon their mistakes and make it a place that everyone can enjoy. The administration is always changing curriculum to fit the needs of the students, and the students are always challenging the faculty in order to improve upon the status quo. Academics are a high priority at Southern, but it's still possible to have a life while you're here, as well. BSC is an exception to most of the stereotypes for the region, because it is always growing and changing. Some people come to the South and expect to find people in the Dark Ages. At BSC, however, it's clear that people are looking towards the future.
