156 Years Later

While some of you were sleeping through January and others were off campus on Ex-Term (formerly Interim) projects, BSC celebrated its 156 anniversary. On the 25th of January, 1856, the Alabama legislature formally incorporated Southern University, our parent institution, at Greensboro. In 1918, Southern merged with Birmingham College on the latter's Hilltop campus to create Birmingham-Southern College. Forward Ever.
