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.

Hanging out at E-Fest—The coordinators of Quest II, the student activities board at Birmingham-Southern, engage in a little fun at the college's annual E-Fest Fall Concert Festival held recently at local entertainment venue WorkPlay. More than 500 BSC students attended the concert this year, which featured the rock bands Nelo and Everclear. The Quest II coordinators shown, along with the areas they oversee, are (rotating from top left): Rob NeSmith (entertainment), Tina Gillespie (special events), Buddy Permenter (at-large), Briana Williams (Homecoming), Lee Hopf (president), Ashley Bayles (freshman factor), Kamari Little (campus events), Mary McDaniel (secretary/treasurer), and Anais Plasketes (Attic). Kyle Lo Porto, Quest II advisor, is pictured on the floor.
The rush is over—Birmingham-Southern's three-day sorority recruitment process came to a close Sept. 16 on Bid Day when females were told which of the college's six National Panhellenic Conference sororities they could call their own. After receiving their bids, the 114 new sorority women (mostly freshmen) rushed down the hill from the Norton Campus Center to the Sorority Townhouse amphitheater area to join in celebration with their new sisters. Here, Alpha Omicron Pi member Laura Moran, a sophomore business major from Huntsville, demonstrates that unbreakable bond of love that exists between sisters. The annual Fraternity Rush activities for BSC's six national fraternities ended Sept. 17. A Greek Block Party was held Saturday, Sept. 19, to culminate the end of both recruitment processes and to celebrate each chapter and its new members.
