Paint party—Birmingham-Southern’s Alpha Tau Omega fraternity recently held its first philanthropy project of the year. The annual “Paint Rave” took place Sept. 9 at the college’s intramural fields. Students paid $10 for admission, which included a bottle of paint. A DJ was on hand, and students danced while painting each other. ATO raised more than $4,000 for the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Pictured during the event (from left to right) are BSC students Andres Berrios, Ross Pearlman, Ewan Hadgraft, Jesse Posey, and Xuejiao Feng.
Extreme adventure—Six Birmingham-Southern students, accompanied by Mike Robinson, BSC director of physical fitness and recreation, had the thrilling experience of rafting the Ocoee River in Dayton, Tenn. The annual white water rafting trip was held Sept. 4 as part of the activities planned and promoted by Southern Outdoor Recreation, a component of the college’s Physical Fitness & Recreation Department.
