WHAT I LIKED

BSC encourages the development of analytical thinking through gathering factual information and applying a variety of philosophical and intellectual filters. Based on the classical liberal arts method, the degree programs are strong, resilient, and have an excellent foundation.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is a multitude of connections through professors, other students, and alumni of BSC that are immensely helpful.

WHAT I LIKED

Birmingham-Southern is a great college for students who thrive in smaller environments and workspaces. Being able to connect with your professors on a personal level is not something you get at bigger schools. Professors genuinely care about your well-being and want you to succeed if you're willing to put in the work. Students also are great and there are fewer people in your class, so you are able to bond with people in your class. What you put into this college is what you get out of it.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I honestly think that the experience will of course be different for everyone, but I would say for orientation be prepared to be put out of your comfort zone. I of course did not like an orientation at the beginning like anyone else, but it helped me make friends and bond with people I would've never thought I would relate to. It was an interesting experience, to say the least. If you put yourself out there, you'd be surprised at what you get back.
