What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved visiting BSC and look forward to being a student on campus in the fall. I will be working towards my pharmacy degree and also getting a minor in business while I’m at BSC. I will also be on the football team so I’m excited about joining the Panther family. I look forward to working with the coaching staff and the professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Birmingham Southern College is a perfect choice for me. The class sizes are smaller. Average class size is maybe fifteen to twenty students. I have a great appreciation for the smaller environment because it will afford me the opportunity not to be a number in class. I will be afforded the opportunity to know my classmates and the instructors and I will be known name. I’ve visited Birmingham Southern College three times and each time I felt welcomed and I the energy was positive. I totally envision myself attending school there. The campus is very clean, the dorm rooms are nice and the sport facilities are equipped with updated equipment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just finished my first year at Birmingham- Southern College and it was the best year I could have asked for. From living in California to going to school in Birmingham, Alabama was a huge move for me, but the people who are on the campus from friends to sorority sisters to professors have made my school feel like home, and ultimately the best choice I have ever made. The professors are always willing to help outside of the classroom. There was never a time when I needed help with my school work, that a professor was unable to help. Also, the people I have met have become my lifelong friends. Everyone on campus is very friendly, and are always willing to help. I remember I needed a ride off campus and my car was in repair, and my friend was willing to drive me off campus as soon as she heard that my car was broken. The housing situation was all I could have asked for as well. The freshman dorms always had available showers, laundry, and bathrooms, and I never had to wait my turn to use any of those 3. Overall Birmingham-Southern College is a great community to be a part of, and a proud place to be a Panther!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is overall a fairly good institution. It is small, but welcoming with good facilities and education. It is a nice community of students and professors, and the campus is very safe. They have a wide variety of majors from the arts to the sciences, and as a liberal arts school they give many opportunities to study things that interest you that may not be within your major. They also have many good connections that are very helpful when it comes to finding internships and eventually a career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a great college so far. The only thing I did not like was orientation for three days before the first day of class. I felt like I was being forced to make friends in my orientation group and I don't talk to any of them. But i have met amazing people through my classes. I'm especially excited for Jan term!

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

My school is best known for the intimate class sizes and pre-prpfessions programs.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Wow. There is so much I could say to my Senior Self. I've learned so much in just one semester of college. I would tell myself first and foremost, to not get lazy. I would stress the importance of staying focused and not slacking in my final year of high school. I would also tell myself to start much earlier in choosing a college and applyign for financial aid. I wish I had taken it all more seriously and filed my FAFSA sooner. I missed out on financial award opportunities because I procrastinated on finalizing my college decisions. I would brace myself for the rigor of college. I didn't realize it would be so difficult and so much different from college. I would tell myself to buckle down and spend more time studying instead of putting everything off and being so laxed about things I should have taken seriously.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who likes a smaller school. Anyone one looking for intimate classes and a very friendly environment.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

There is no question that I would advise myself to hold less importance on social statuse among the other seniors. It seems almost impossible to teach a teenager not to care about popularity, but I wish I would have been happier and more relaxed during my time in high school. I feel as though laid back people can take things in as a whole easier than high strung people are able to do. Simply put, don't get caught up in the moment. Sit back and enjoy the time you are given with people whose company you enjoy; try not to let mean students affect your quality of life suring this crucial time coming into adulthood.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The location in Birmingham. Luckily, it is surrounded by a gate and campus security is very good. However, we were told to travel at least fifteen minutes when going off campus before stopping somewhere.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

As (what I would consider) a very successful high school student, I feel I never found a successful way to learn and perform the best that I could at Birmingham-Southern. It's a very intimidating college as a new student and it seems that there is one type of student that they cater to help. Students that would be considered "brown-nosers" are the most successful. This was frustrating to me because extroversion is not one of my personality traits which kept me from standing out in a positive way.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I go back and become a high school senior, I will get as much information as possible about the college that I want to go to, such as what kinds of programs that could benefit and be right for me, what are the special and outstanding activities that serve students, and what are the opportunities to further my education once I graduate. To make the transition easier, I will make sure I fill out financial aid applications if I am qualified, pass all of the required exams for the college I wish to go to, and seek scholarships if they are available for high school graduates. What’s more, I need to make sure I perform well in high school. To be better prepared for college, not only will I need to keep high grades, but also realize that school activities and community services are important as well. Also, I can always get help from my school if I have any questions, such as contacting my counselor to get advice. Overall, it is important for me to finish the process. I should realize that go to college I should be more self-confident, motivated, independent, and responsible.
