Birmingham-Southern College once again named one of America's “Best Buys”

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern College is one of 26 private institutions in the nation named as a Best Buy in the 2009 edition of the “Fiske Guide to Colleges.” In addition to the 26 private institutions, The Best Buys List of 2009 includes 23 public universities from the U.S., Canada and Great Britain.

Of the 49 total colleges and universities selected, BSC is the only school in the state, private or public, to make the list. According to the recently released guidebook, the college's selection is based on the quality of academic offerings in relation to the cost of attendance.
