A time for scholarship—Christopher Thomaskutty (top photo, second from right), a 1999 Birmingham-Southern graduate and current analyst for the Baltimore mayor's office, was back on campus in April to deliver the Honors Day Convocation address. Honors Day is an annual celebration of the year's academic accomplishments and also includes a demonstration of scholarship and creative works by students and faculty. With Thomaskutty are (from left) BSC President Dr. David Pollick, junior political science major Webb Lyons of Centre who recently was announced as a 2005 Harry S. Truman Scholar, and BSC Interim Provost Dr. Wayne Shew. Thomaskutty was a 1998 Truman Scholar.
In addition to the scholarly presentations made on Honors Day, BSC seniors are in the process of presenting their senior conferences as required under the new Foundations general education curriculum. The Class of 2005 is the first cohort of students to complete four years of college under the new curriculum and to share one aspect of that four years of scholarship with the BSC intellectual community.

Stephens Science Center.
