I have mixed feelings about Birmingham-Southern. My professors are great and I have made several good friends. It has been a wonderful place for me to grow in the last year and a half but it has some drawbacks. I came from another state and a much larger city not in the south and the social life here caught me way off guard. Please don't be discouraged from visiting and applying to BSC, but I strongly urge you to spend some time on the campus before you make your decision. I wish I had now. The social life on campus is very dull and most of the girls here are your typical totin', wearin', follow the pack, gossipy, sweet tea sippin' southern belles. Most are closeminded and can come across as snooty although I'll admit some can be the most sweet people you'll ever meet. The guys here are also extremely southern for the most part. I have heard more glass packs and muddin' trucks and seen more old-south paraphernalia than I really ever cared to see. To each his own ya know? ha. As it stands right now, the guy/girl ratio is to the girls' disadvantage. Students tend to be very cliquish and stay in their own little groups. Alot of people at this school also went to the same high school. To the contrary, if you look hard enough there are people here who don't fit the stereotype I gave but you'll have to be the judge of that. Just be careful when you choose a college because the faculty and administration can be great but its the students who make the school. That's all for my opinion.
