Witch way to the treats?—Scores of local children in costumes got a chance to show off their artistic abilities by decorating cookies during Birmingham-Southern's 13th annual “Halloween on the Hilltop.” The college's Student Government Association, Panhellenic Council (the governing body for sororities at BSC), and Interfraternity Council sponsor the event each Oct. 31 for the children of faculty and staff, as well as students from nearby schools. More than 1,000 trick-or-treaters went on a quest for candy on the Residence Hall Quad. The sponsoring groups also set up booths and tables of games and goodies and passed out hundreds of hot dogs, bags of potato chips, and can drinks.
Pre-election forum—Students at Birmingham-Southern got a taste of the upcoming election from a Republican perspective at an Oct. 28 campus forum hosted by the BSC College Republicans. U.S. Representative from Alabama and 1987 BSC alumnus Robert Aderholt (pictured fourth from left) spoke about the upcoming election with a special emphasis on the important House and Senate races around the country and the possible shake-up of Congress. He also addressed his position on the recent “Bailout Bill” and accepted questions from students. Representatives of the BSC College Republicans pictured with Aderholt after his speech are (from left) Dr. Bert Morrow, associate professor of business administration and faculty advisor; Brent Culver, secretary; Zach Guyse; second vice chairman; Alex Masterson, chairman; Nico Arciniegas, treasurer; Corey Decker, media relations coordinator; and Ben Odendahl, first vice chairman. Aderholt was re-elected into his seventh term in office Nov. 4.
