Celebrating spring—Members of Birmingham-Southern's Multi-Cultural Awareness Organization recently celebrated the Hindu festival of Holi, which marks the arrival of spring. Also called the Festival of Colors, Holi is celebrated all over India as one of the most important of Hindu religious and cultural festivals. Members of MCAO said they had a fun time introducing this new festival to BSC and hope to increase future attendance and awareness of the festival throughout the campus.
Collegiate representatives—Several Birmingham-Southern students got a chance to meet Alabama Gov. Bob Riley while attending the YMCA's Collegiate Legislature held recently in Montgomery. Pictured (from left) are James Butler, Stephanie Gossett, Alex Masterson, Riley, Kacey Swindell, Ashley Rhea, and Zach Guyse. The conference gives college students the opportunity to participate in a model legislative session—including writing and debating bills in the Alabama State House—and attend workshops on leadership, lobbying, and ethics. Masterson was honored for writing the Most Outstanding Bill, which was the most prestigious award handed out, and Rhea received the award for Most Outstanding Delegate. In addition to personal achievements, the entire BSC group was recognized as the Most Outstanding Delegation at the conference. This was the first year BSC participated in the event, joining schools from all over Alabama.
