5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am absolutely in love with BSC. I was impressed by what I found researching it on the website. But when I visited, I knew without a doubt that this was where I belong. The atmosphere here is one of acceptance and care. The small class sizes are a huge plus for me and he staff want you to do well. The completely fenced in campus along with the responsive, kind security make me feel safe and secure and the students and staff make me feel like family.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: BSC has a little bit of everyone and everywhere. The diversity on campus is wide and everyone gets along with everyone. There is a welcoming and accepting tone the minute you enter the campus. All the students and staff welcome anyone and everyone with open arms and it takes no time for you to feel at home.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The college is fairly generous with financial aid. I was given about half of the funds I needed in merit based aid. The remainder was covered by need based aid also from the college and a few manageable loans. The financial planning team at BSC made the whole process very simple and easy. I had my award letter within weeks of submitting my FAFSA.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus always has security guards on duty 24/7. And they are super helpful and friendly. They'll even help you off campus if you call them. The campus has public phones that students can use to call security whenever they need them. The security officers will bring you back to campus after a night on the town or walk you back to your dorm after a late night study session.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There is a lot of variety in the Norton dining hall. They have just about everything you could want to eat including vegetarian dishes. My personal favorite is the make your own Caesar salad bar. And there's plenty of space so finding a seat is no problem.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I can't wait to go back!!! I'd choose my school again in a heartbeat it has everything I could possibly ask for and I love every minute of it!!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You have dining in the city, dining off the interstate, or dining by the malls

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My program has many different options in my curriculum.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I didn't have a problem getting into the school.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a little bit of everyone on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Im apart of a varsity sports team and I have never received so much support from my school!!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Some days are very on point and good but other days I have to go eat somewhere else.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I feel as though I'm attending an SEC school but on a very smaller level. All the options I have would be offered at a very large school, but you can't find this level of personableness there.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Some of the dorms are very nice but you have to spend a lot of money to get into them. The greek life houses are very nice and so are the athletic facilities. Almost every facility on campus is in very good condition.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: My school is very challenging! Everyday you constantly are being challenged inside and outside the classroom.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: We have so many options to study whatever and wherever we please!

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: You follow the rules or your out!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The housing of campus is fairly expensive and you run the risk of traffic.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very cleaned up.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus police is always present. I feel very safe walking by myself between classes

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would definitely choose BSC again if I had it to do over. The staff and faculty, with the ever present exceptions, treat you like an individual and want to help you to succeed and do your best

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining options in the caf could be a little more varied, and possibly the recipes tweaked

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is a lot to do in Birmingham. As a native, I have already experienced most of it, but to a new college student just moving here, there probably seems to be an overwhelming variety to choose from

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I have not noticed much about the strictness other than the honor code, which pretty much encompasses all other behavior, in and out of the classroom

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I'm not one to rate others based on these criteria. There are a few that grate on your nerves, some that are great to hang around, and some that are in between.

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.
