Hilltop Photo of the Week
Welcome to Birmingham-Southern's “Hilltop Photo of the Week” web page and archives. Each week at this site, we'll feature a photo that depicts some aspect of life on the Hilltop campus, along with brief information about what is taking place in the Photo of the Week.
The college welcomes submissions to be considered for the Hilltop Photo of the Week. Scanned or digital photos can be e-mailed to the Office of Communications at firstname.lastname@example.org, or photographic prints may be sent through campus mail to Box 549004. Please limit photo submissions to those that depict some aspect of the BSC experience, and be sure to identify what is taking place in the photo, along with location and people involved.

The EcoScape, or Ecological Landscape, at Birmingham-Southern is an outdoor classroom that offers its users ideas for protecting and enhancing the environment through art, gardening, and nature study. Referred to as a “community” or “therapy” garden, it is located behind the student apartments and intramural fields on the western end of campus.
Visitors can stroll through a wildflower garden, touch and sample edible plants and flowers, and observe a huge Praying Mantis sculpture (created by Allen Peterson '94). The garden (EcoScape) houses several native and endangered plant species of Alabama, along with a plethora of tree varieties.
