Despite various controversies within the state of Alabama over the stereotypes that Birmingham-Southern students get, they're not all without merit, because many of them are true. B-SC students are typically from Old South families, and have grown up accustomed to receiving the finer things in life. However, they are also known for their extremely hard work ethic.
Beautiful, calm place where students are really smart and work hard for what they get.
But it's true -- they have a lot of money.
No, but really. A lot.
But it's cool. They're great people and know how to PARTY HARD! After a week of working their butts off, I'd say they deserve it.
Definitely the BEST SCHOOL IN THE STATE OF ALABAMA.
Unlike Samford. Where I go. BOO!
UAB KID: BITCH! DON'T BE HATIN' JUST CAUSE YOUR ASS WASN'T ACCEPTED!
The college is ranked in the Top 10 Colleges in the Southeast and is among the Top 150 Private Colleges in the Nation.
Its students traditionally come from families that fall in the upper-middle to upper class bracket, and they also maintain high GPAs.
Birmingham-Southern is fairly selective in its admission process, and students report that it's even harder to stay enrolled due to its rigorous courses and heavy workload.
Many of the professors at Birmingham-Southern have ranked higher in student approval and College Review Boards than those at Yale, Vanderbilt, Duke, and Tulane Universities, respectively.
The college spends more on indvidual student services than any other school in the South. Its student-teacher ratio is approx. 12:1
Graduates from BSC are highly sought after, especially in the Southeast. It has become known as a breeding ground for future lawyers, doctors, and politicians.
Tuition at BSC is among the highest in the South, with the total collective cost (including tuiton, meal plans, books, and room and board) averaging $40,000 a year. However, its massive endowment allows for numerous scholarships for students from low-income families.
Despite its high cost of attendance, enrollment at BSC is constantly growing. In past three years, student enrollment has reached a record high. It currently (as of Fall 2009) has an enrollment of approx. 1600.
Liberal Arts School where you pay out the ass to get an education that will put you equal with your parents, who have to make at least $150,000 a year.
A school where you see at least fifty iPhones every day. The losers have BlackBerrys.
And no one in hell would ever have a RAZR.
Polos Ralph Lauren, Coach, and Rock&Republic are all around you.
Forget the GAP.
A school where the students work really hard but gossip and party harder.
Nickname: Hilltop High.
Get ready to hear your name mentioned in conversations about what you did when you were drunk.
IN A NUTSHELL: If you're poor, get ready to feel out of place.
And if you are, you better be REALLY smart to make up for it.
GIRL2: SO LAST SEASON. Ugh. I can't believe that bitch has the audacity. She's obviously not from Birmingham Southern College.
GIRL1: Damn. Moving on...Are you still dating the lacrosse captain?
All of the hot girls went to Ole Miss and some went to UA, but here’s what you get:
AOPis - beauty queen social climbers
Chi Os - pretentious, bitchy girls who have some "important cause" they are always whining or blogging about
Kappa Delta - Extroverted girls who look down on anyone without a trust fund. Note: when they're drunk...they don't care!
Zetas - BSC’s resident ugly sluts who live for drama, "lucky" for us, they know their place and will do some pretty kinky stuff for male attention
Pi Beta Phi - Emos and stragglers. For $60,000: are they even girls?
If you are a guy at BSC you face some slim pickings when it comes to hook ups, especially since most girls want an MRS even more so than a BFA (hello, future Vestavia Hills housewife!) However, your chances increase exponentially if you have a cool car, fake rolex, a drug supply, and belong to one of these frats:
Theta Chi - Can’t play for Alabama? You’ve got daddy’s money, so who cares? Paintball, Ultimate Frisbee and mini golf for everyone in this sports frat, where the sportiest it gets is beer pong!
ATO - Think Delta frat, but "sexually suspect." Known for throwing kick ass parties for hos. Girls go here because they know they won’t get hit on every six seconds. Little do they realize they wouldn’t get hit on anyway.
Sigma Chi - The smug bastard frat. Think of the most stereotypical, douchey frat boy you can, stick “class president” on his suit and “kiss the cook” on his grill apron, and you have a sigma.
Sigma Alpha Epsilon - Same Assholes Everywhere. Same douchiness found in Sigma Chi, but with a “Southern Gentleman” veneer to make up for other, uh, shortcomings.
If you go to BSC, remember your three R's: never turn RIGHT after leaving school because that goes into the ghetto, save the ROOFIES for Samford and UA since all the chicks here are more or less easy because they have to be, and forget your RITHMETIC because all the tests are multiple choice anyway.
Thurston Asshat Rimjobber III: Yeah I know but I like really wanted to go to Harvard
6 months later
Jethro: Where you been Thurston
Thurston: I had to go to UAB, BSC was like way too hard
John: Hi baby, I have two cars and three houses and I know the president of the school so I am going here for free
Random ugly a$$ bitch: UH, you did know we go to a school where everyone knows everything about everyone, and you can’t make too much up, right? You're a poli sci major, you work two jobs and the army is helping pay for your school. You're not in a frat and you don't have a state county named after you, so piss off.
