A tradition on the Birmingham Southern campus that began 11-years ago will continue on Monday, January 28, 2013. It's called "Mama's Home Cookin'."
This event happens every year as BSC students are completing the month-long Exploration Term. This term allows students to pursue one specialized project, a one-time campus course, internships or other activities.
It began in 2002, when a residence hall advisor named Chris Herrington asked his mother to prepare a home-cooked meal for the residents on his floor. This one event grew into a "campus-wide celebration," according to Pat Cole, who is a communications specialist with BSC.
On Monday at 6PM, about 50 parents from all over the region are expected to be here to prepare those meals. The dinner will take place in the Bruno great Hall of the North Campus Center.
