Nearly all the facilities at Birmingham-Southern are new or newly renovated. The Norton Student Center is the place for eating, socializing, finding books, buying necessities, and mailing letters home to mom and dad. Norton is usually the place on campus with the most activity, but not far behind is the Striplin Fitness Center. The equipment is new, and there are even reservable private rooms. IM sports are played there, and there is an indoor pool for relaxing. Nearly all of the academic buildings have been renovated, and the newest addition is the Elton B. Stephens Science Center that has high-quality labs and equipment.
Furthermore, the staff at BSC is very good about maintaining all of the facilities. There are always people outside working on the grounds and perfecting the landscape, as well as a friendly maintenance crew that is quick to take care of problems. The administration has talked about a complete renovation of the dance and sports education buildings, as well as ongoing renovations for the dorms. There is always something that is being improved so that students can have access to the best facilities possible. Aside from the buildings on campus, students can also enjoy a striking view of the Birmingham cityscape that really enhances the aesthetic and overall appeal of the campus.
