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.

A Greek Challenge —The Birmingham-Southern student environmental group EnAct launched its Greek Week Recycle-Thon March 31, in partnership with Order of Omega's Greek Week, the Southern Environmental Center, and Global Earth Awareness Month. BSC fraternity chapters, working with sororities, are involved in a recycling contest to see who can collect the most aluminum. The winners will be announced April 22 at the Earth Day Festival on the residence hall quad, and funds raised from the contest will support an on-campus Frisbee-golf course and EnAct-sponsored band party in the fall. In the photo (from left) are EnAct members Allison Hardin, Whit Hendrix, and Ben Tracy (serves as vice president); Frank Breaux, Sigma Nu president; Chris Johnson, EnAct treasurer; Dr. Ed Brands, coordinator of urban environmental studies and assistant professor of geography; and Natalie Ausborn, Order of Omega representative.
Honors Travel —Nine Birmingham-Southern Harrison Scholars recently presented papers on various topics at the Southern Regional Honors Council conference in St. Petersburg, Fla. The students (from left to right) were Carson Land, Ryan Melvin, Ben Miller, Kristin Hendricks, Forrest Boughner, Allison Schuver, Natalie Ausborn, Russ Norris, and Kristen Kerr. “We arrived hours late due to airline mechanical problems in Birmingham, and three of the students gave their papers immediately upon arriving at the hotel in St. Petersburg, poised and professional—if somewhat rumpled from travel,” said Dr. Susan Hagen, Mary Collett Munger Professor of English and director of the Harrison Honors Program at BSC. “Several directors from other schools commented on how consistently good our presentations are.”
