| First of all, you need to know that I was raised in a cotton engulfed town in north west Alabama. That is very important.|
I love BSC with all my heart. However, if you are a senior in high school right now, know this: High school is literally nothing like college. I did not have to study much if really ever in high school. I have pulled 3 all-nighters to date and I'm just entering the second semester of my freshman year. Procrastination is not going to cut it at this school. Professors hold you to a very high standard, as they should because BSC is a great school, and they will not back off of it.
Also, there are students here of all different shapes and sizes. You are obviously going to have your rednecks and Southern Belles, being in the heart of the South, but there are plenty of people who have never sipped sweet tea in their life. Maybe herbal, but not sweet :P And I know we have a reputation of having an intimidating Greek life, but please don't be fooled by the 50:50 ratio. If you are not Greek, you still have a life and things to do. I personally am Greek but a lot of my girlfriends are not and I've even taken some of them to Greek events with me. Independents are welcomed on both Frat and Soroiety row. And even if you do not pledge, rush is a great way to meet people. The same goes for the guys on all of this.If you have any other questions, I have provided my email address. Feel free to contact me.

| My advice: Visit the schools you are considering! I have one boy in his second year of college and one who will start next year. The one most important thing for them in making their selection was the college visit, especially the overnight-in-the-dorm type of visit that the smaller colleges usually offer. My older boy did a lot of reading about schools and picked out his top six. Then he visited. The school that he thought would be his top choice he HATED! The one he chose, which he really likes, he decided on by the next morning after his overnight stay. When I met him at the admissions office, he said, "This is where I want to spend the next four years of my life." I would say NOTHING compares to the visit in helping to make a choice. When the kids all gathered in the dorm room at night, they gave him the straight scoop on the college. This is something he couln't get from broshures, conversations with admissions officers, or conversations with "student ammbassadors", whose job is to represent the school. Hope that helps. |
