THE COMMUNITY

BSC’s Main Campus is located on 173 acres of land just inside the city limits on U.S. Highway 84 East. Its physical environment is one of rustic beauty, accentuated by stately pine and moss-draped oak trees. A lake adjoins the campus and further enhances the natural environment and beauty. The College is a community institution with no on-campus residence facilities. Students commute from the nearby towns of Attapulgus, Blakely, Brinson, Cairo, Camilla, Climax, Colquitt, Donalsonville, Iron City, Pelham, Thomasville, and Whigham. With the inclusion of Gadsden County to the College’s service area, students from neighboring Florida communities also attend the College as in-state students.

BSC’s beautiful Early County Center Site, located on the US Hwy. 27 Bypass at Blakely, became part of the college in July 2006. It serves Early County and its surrounding area, including Alabama’s Henry County and Houston County whose residents may attend with in-state tuition rates.
