Admitted students experienced Birmingham-Southern at the Select 'Southern event held on March 1-2, 2015.
Birmingham-Southern has a number of ways to keep students, faculty, staff, and parents informed of weather alerts, school closures, and other emergency situations on or near campus:
BSC Text Alerts—Cell phone numbers entered into TheSIS will be automatically put into our emergency text alert system. Texts will come from “BSC Alert.” Click here for directions to enter your number into TheSIS. Parents, please urge your students to check their information.
Our campus hotline, (205)226-3000, will have the college’s most up-to-date emergency information and operational status. It may be more current than the web site in the case of widespread power outages or server failures.
For more information, read the college’s entire Emergency Response Manual, which outlines our approach to any situation. Tornado directions are posted in each building on campus.
Members of the BSC community should use their discretion in judging the safety of traveling to campus during dangerous weather. Details on the inclement weather response plan can be found here.
The Office of Communications will also notify the following local media outlets regarding closings and delays:
