Do you need a package shipped and don’t have time to get to the nearest shipping outlet? Are you looking for a new dining option to try in the area?

You can do all of this and more at Brewton-Parker College.

There are certain facilities and services on BPC’s main campus in Mount Vernon that are available not only to BPC students, faculty, and staff, but to the general public as well.

The Fountain-New Library houses a wide variety of resources sure to aid any type of research project. All materials are available and free for public use while visiting the library. Should the checkout of any books be necessary, a one-time $10.00 checkout fee is required with a limit of five books per checkout.

During summer semester, the library is open Monday – Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. and on Fridays 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. During fall and spring semesters, the library is open Monday – Thursday 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m., Fridays 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., Saturdays 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., and Sundays 8:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.

The Aramark Corporation is responsible for providing all meals on campus through the Cyber Café and the Residential Restaurant, both of which are also located in the Phillips Student Center.

During summer semester, the Cyber Café is closed while the Residential Restaurant is open Monday – Friday serving fifteen meals per week. However, both will be open again seven days a week starting in the fall, with the Residential Restaurant serving a traditional Sunday lunch buffet each week. There are also plans to publish all menus beginning this fall on BPC’s website – www.bpc.edu.
