In the interest of safety for our students, faculty and staff, BSC will be closed all day Tuesday. Travel conditions will continue to be monitored Tuesday, and an additional alert will be issued Tuesday night in the event campus closure is extended. Additional information regarding dining and other services for students on campus will follow soon. Please remain weather aware and be safe regarding any activities and travel you undertake.


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.” Go to the IT helpdesk for directions to enter your number into TheSIS (open the "How do I get Emergency Text Messages?" accordion). 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.
  • The college’s Facebook page and Twitter account will also carry updated information in case of weather or other closures or delays.
  • 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 local media outlets regarding closings and delays.
