Hilltop Photo of the Week
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.

From desk to desktop—Birmingham-Southern students Taylor Hawkins (on left) and Brendan Griffin view a selection of yearbooks from days gone by, currently on display in the BSC Library. The library recently digitized and made available the complete 97 volumes of student yearbooks, along with other student literary and academic publications, as part of the LYRASIS Mass Digitization Collaborative (thanks to the Sloan Foundation and the financial support of an anonymous friend of the college). Yearbooks and other college publications may be enjoyed online at www.archive.org/details/birminghamsouthern.
An opera classic—Three BSC music students performed in Opera Birmingham's recent production of Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor. Shown (from left) are Colin Alexander, a sophomore music major; Susanna Phillips, who sang the title role of Lucia; Hannah Ellington, a senior vocal performance major; John Bellemer, who sang the role of Lucia's lover Edgardo; and Mandy McDaniel-Stack, a junior vocal performance major. Lucia di Lammermoor is the story of a feud between two families and how it comes between these two lovers, ultimately leading to their untimely deaths. Phillips regularly performs at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City. She gave a master class on campus March 11 in which Ellington performed. This was Ellington's fifth production with Opera Birmingham. The students can be seen in BSC's three one-act opera productions The Impresario, Comedy on the Bridge, and Gallantry, which will be performed April 15 and 17 in the College Theatre.
