Birmingham-Southern College to break ground for new Admission Welcome Center

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Construction commenced recently on the new Admission Welcome Center at Birmingham-Southern College. A groundbreaking ceremony will take place Dec. 11 at the construction site to officially commemorate the project beginning.

The center, which will house the college's Office of Admission, will be located on the land in front of the Striplin Fitness Center. It is positioned for easy access to serve as the front door for campus visitors and to welcome prospective students and their families.

The 9,000 square-foot, one-story facility will feature a great hall to welcome visitors, two wings containing administration space including a presentation room, and a courtyard and terrace for entertaining. The Admission Welcome Center is slated to open fall of 2007.
