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 email@example.com, 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.

Musical emissaries—The BSC Concert Choir recently completed its annual spring tour (shown here performing in Chattanooga) and will present its Homecoming Concert in Birmingham on Sunday, April 13, at 5 p.m. at Canterbury United Methodist Church, 350 Overbrook Road, in Mountain Brook. Performances of major works will include The Sun is Setting by Jan Vicar with Alabama Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Daniel Szasz as guest soloist, Haydn's Te Deum in C, Madrigali by Morten Lauridsen, and various shorter works.
A question of justice—Sister Helen Prejean (center), a Catholic nun whose voice is well known for opposing capital punishment, recently delivered this year's Bishop's Lecture in Faith and Ethics at Birmingham-Southern. Speaking from a spiritual and sociological perspective, her topic “Questioning the Death Penalty” challenged the audience to become involved in social justice by seeking to abolish state-sponsored executions. Prejean is best known for her Pulitzer Prize-nominated book Dead Man Walking about her experiences as a Death Row counselor. A 1995 movie based on the book was nominated for an Oscar and propelled Prejean and her campaign into national and international prominence. Pictured with Prejean are BSC President Dr. David Pollick and BSC Provost Dr. Kathleen Murray.
