Welcome to Birmingham-Southern's “Hilltop Photo of the Week” webpage 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.

Ringing sweetly-On Wednesday, May 5, Birmingham-Southern seniors made a special ascent up to the roof of the Neal and Anne Berte Humanities Center on campus to sound out the end of classes for the spring 2010 term. The senior bell ringing occurred several times throughout the day and ended in the late afternoon with 154 rings in honor of the college's anniversary. Here, Ruth Hanks, a biology major from Scottsboro, gets her turn. The activity is a 25-year-plus tradition at BSC.
Leaping into action-Members of the Birmingham-Southern track and field program wanted to get involved with the community and recently volunteered to spend time with students from Shades Cahaba Elementary School. Head Coach Kenneth Cox (far right) and several of BSC's track and field athletes hosted a campus field trip to Panther Stadium in April for winners of Shades Cahaba Elementary's Owl Prowl competition. The coaches and student-athletes showed the 30 elementary students around the stadium and gave them a chance to run a lap around the track and even participate in jumping events and a women's shot put competition. "During our weeks off, we like to get involved in activities that are important to us," Cox said. "This includes spending time with youth and bringing awareness to healthy activities such as running and staying active. This event is a lot of fun for both the kids and for us, and we look forward to hosting it again next year."
