Home run hitter—Birmingham-Southern's baseball team is again stacked with talent. After winning the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Eastern Division title in 2009, the 2010 team is 25-4 on the season and in first place in the SCAC Eastern Division with a record of 8-1 in the conference. In two national NCAA Division III polls, the team is currently ranked 15th in the D3 Baseball.com top 25 and 11th in the ABCA. Here, junior centerfield J.D. Hulse (on right) is congratulated by Assistant Coach Drew Briese after rounding the bases for a home run against recent opponent DePauw University. The Panthers, led by Head Coach Jan Weisberg, will take to the road this weekend for a three-game series with the Lynx of Rhodes College in Memphis. Game time for the series opener on Saturday is slated for 1 p.m.

What's it like to be homeless?—As part of annual Habitat Week, students in BSC's Habitat for Humanity chapter constructed this “cardboard city” on the academic quad April 8 and camped out overnight. Their mission was to bring attention to the need for affordable housing in the Birmingham area and to experience what it's like not to have a safe place to sleep every night. “I didn't sleep very much because it got cold, and I didn't have a blanket,” said freshman David Olsen. “It makes you appreciate the comforts that we have and usually take for granted,” commented junior Avani Patel. Members of the college's Habitat chapter and other campus groups will participate in a home repair in Leeds April 10. In the photo are (from left) Olsen, Alexandra Austin, Brian Lam, Forrest McMillan, and Patel.
