Birmingham-Southern College Reviews

I am a freshman at BSC right now and have absolutely loved my experience so far. Classes have been great with professors that care about every student. As a non-stem major, most of my classes this year are well under 20 students.
I like Birmingham Southern College because of our campus life. On campus you can find a wide range of clubs, inter murals, athletics, frats/sorority, and many others. The friends you make here will stay for life!
Excellent admissions recruitment and people. Very helpful with all of our questions and admissions process.
Everyone is so willing to help and make sure you understand. Faculty and students are both amazing!
I have genuinely enjoyed BSC. It is an amazing campus filled with great people and it makes you feel at home. Being an out-of-state student, BSC has made sure I feel comfortable and happy being here.
Professors are good. BSC could offer more course options, limited in comparison to surrounding colleges. The school needs repairs. Overall, the students are nice. Dorms are awful and safety is an issue.
The professors are phenomenal (for the most part, there's always some duds), and the quality of education I received over my 4 years here was truly amazing. However, there needs to be some serious changes done within the higher-ups of the institution as a whole. The president is clueless about the needs of the students and focuses more on the appearance of the school to outsiders. He was hired to get the school out of debt, and there has been little improvement to that fact. The quality of the campus police has gone down tremendously since I began here. While they are advertised as being incredibly helpful and willing to go above and beyond for the students (they came and changed my tire almost 30 minutes outside of campus one time) they are now lazy and have allowed a predator to get on campus not once, not twice, but five times. There is so much potential for this to be an incredible institution, but I fear it will become a dead college before that happens.
BSC has made my entire experience in finding a college very personal. They have invested in learning about me from the very start.
Online classes were very easy, professors did well in person and online, very beneficial during COVID
I never had the chance to learn online from the school but I am sure that their online experience would be great.
My favorite part about attending Birmingham-Southern was getting to know my other classmates and forming relationships that will last a long time. I also loved all the professors. They were all very helpful.
I didn’t have any classes that were completely online but the communication and anything done technical was superior level.
I like how it really felt like a community. You get to know the professors, staff and other students very well and it’s like everyone is family. It’s a quaint campus where I felt safe and always things to do/events going on. And located in a big city where I could go venture out for shopping and restaurants and job opportunities.
Its definitely purely up to the student to do well in these classes. Ive had so many assignments sneak up on me because I'm not walking into a classroom. And professors do not care if you get behind due to any kind of reason.
The online class experience at Birmingham-Southern College is typical. There is not anything special about online learning, especially during COVID 19 outbreaks.
My experience with Birmingham-Southern College has been wonderful. I am a freshman enrolled at BSC and I have just completed my first semester of college, during a worldwide pandemic, and the college has made the transition from high school to college life astonishing. The freshman dorm life, the opportunities to meet new people and make new relationships, and the small classroom sizes are all an amazing thing at Birmingham-Southern College.
Attending College her was sooooo much fun, exiting and amazing. I really dont want anything to change because everything was just perfect for me, the lecturers, environment, facilities, everything.
