Explorations Lectures and Arts Events

A central goal of any liberal arts curriculum is to shape students into lifelong learners.  To assist in this development, you are required to attend forty (40) cultural events before you graduate from Birmingham-Southern.  These events will help you deepen your interest in certain areas and develop interest in new ones.

bullet

Your attendance at lectures and arts events also affects your registration status (check at the bottom of this page to see how!).

You can use the Explorations Events Information System (EEIS) to check the official record of your attendance at cultural events. To access the system you'll need your student ID number from your BSC ID card and your WebMail password.
