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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.

Peppers, eggplant, and cucumbers, oh my!—Birmingham-Southern Admission Officer John Hawkins harvests some fresh summer vegetables from his office's plot in the BSC community garden planted by Becky Baxter and Marilyn Gillespie. “There is nothing better than having vegetables fresh from the garden served directly on your plate,” said Hawkins. “This garden gives the campus another wonderful outlet to build a sense of community.” Since the gardening project was designed last year, several groups on campus have been tending their garden plots and have harvested onions, peppers, tomatoes, lettuce, and cucumbers, to name a few, as well as herbs and flowers. The idea was developed by the BSC Garden Club in October to provide food for the homeless, educate, and promote sustainable organic farming.
