<p>We visited BSC yesterday and found a lot to like.<br>
Here is my list of BSC pros and cons. Share yours!
The campus is beautiful and facilities are up-to-date, especially the science building.<br>
Students were articulate and friendly, engaging us in conversation and answering our questions.
Educators are excited to be there and enjoy their work.
During the snowstorm/gridlock two weeks ago, students worked to help stranded motorists by providing shelter and assistance. No one asked them; they teamed together and just did it.
The college president is charismatic and has a wonderful rapport with the students. He made the statement that, 'we will learn who you are and help you match your interests and capabilities to career and graduate education goals.
There are a lot of opportunities for internships and research. There's a huge medical community in Birmingham so those wanting a pre-med experience has a lot of choices for internships and research.
It's a live-on-campus community. Even some professors live on a street on-campus! The president's house is on-campus.
Merit aid is generous.
There is a Birmingham Southern "bubble" but the new president is pairing education with training/experiential learning opportunities.<br>
Recently recertified as a college that changes lives.</p>
Older, edgy neighborhood but the campus is fenced/security is on-site.</p>
<p>Your turn! Any skeletons in BSC's closet? </p>
