Birmingham Southern College closes

A news outlet is reporting Birmingham-Southern College will close on May 31, 2024.

According to a press release the liberal arts college worked nearly two years to get a $30 million state loan program.

On Tuesday, the College Board of Trustees voted unanimously to close the 168-year-old college after a 2024 bill failed to win support in the Alabama House of Representatives.
