Birmingham-Southern College Reviews
BSC has shaped me into who I am and I can't imagine my life without my experience there. I hope to see continual growth in diversity, and hope to see more students turn "right" off of campus. Although dubbed a "bad area", Arkadelphia road isn't all that scary, and students should go serve, get to know, and love the area they are around. I hope that everyone that goes to a 4 yr institution gets what I got out of bsc. Go panthers and forward ever!
We have many advisers in different areas. My pre-health/med adviser is very helpful in that she allows for meetings to explain courses I need to take for my major and plans after college (grad school, med school). I'm given a predicted 4-year plan each time I meet with her and she is very flexible in changing my schedule to fit my needs or answering any questions I may have about my major/classes. The career center is very helpful and many job/internship opportunities are offered, as well as work-study options. The alumni network is strong and many alumni are successful and enjoy having BSC students as interns. Recruitment on campus is amazing--when I was being recruited, I felt like I was really wanted and that BSC already accepted me as a student. I love my school!
The students and faculty at BSC are so welcoming. My freshman year I was so upset leaving home, and some random stranger came and sat with me while I was freaking out. The students are very nice. And I am looking forward to our brand new food service that is going to expand the vegterain menu on our campus!
