Birmingham-Southern College again included in “Colleges That Change Lives”

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern College is once again included in the “Colleges that Change Lives.”

The 2006-07 fully revised and expanded third edition lists Birmingham-Southern as one of the “40 Schools That Will Change the Way You Think About Colleges.” BSC was also included in the two previous editions in 1996 and 2000. Not every school listed in the current edition shares that distinction.

“Colleges That Change Lives” by former “New York Times” education editor Loren Pope, has sold more than 100,000 copies. It includes profiles on the programs and personality of each college, what the school can offer students both academically and socially, candid assessments by students, professors and deans, and the lifelong benefits of a liberal arts education for today's student.

Birmingham-Southern is a four-year, private liberal arts college founded in 1856 and affiliated with the United Methodist Church. The college is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.

“Colleges That Change Lives: 40 Schools That Will Change the Way You Think About Colleges” third edition is now available. For more information on the author and publication, go to
