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.

Teaching in Ecuador—Katie Adams (in blue shirt), a Spanish major and Harrison Honors Scholar from Anniston, and Virginia Jordan (in white shirt), a political science major from Centre, are spending the college’s January Exploration Term in Ecuador, the fourth-smallest country in South America. The two Birmingham-Southern seniors decided to contract a project entitled “Exploring Education and Sustainability in Ecuador.” They are pictured outside of the Yachana Technical High School in the Napo Province of the Amazon region in Ecuador. Yachana students take classes in literature, math, business, and English, while also studying sustainable agricultural practices by working on the school’s farm and learning practical job skills from local internships. “We’ve been assisting the long-term volunteers with educational workshops in English and economics and living at the school with the students and volunteer teachers,” explained Jordan. “Hugh Yarbrough, a 1990 BSC graduate, works for the Yachana School. Later this month, we will visit Claire Davis ’10 who is serving in the Peace Corps on the coast.” Read about the students’ experiences so far. http://katiewandering.wordpress.com/
“Doctor” to give good dose of humor—Birmingham-Southern students rehearse “The Surgery” scene from Neil Simon’s play The Good Doctor, which opens on the BSC campus Jan. 26 at 7:30 p.m. in the College Theatre/Theatre One. Shown from left to right are Landi Drake Wallace, a senior theatre major from Birmingham; Kelsey Shipley, a senior theatre major from Chattanooga, Tenn.; and Jasha Vaughn, a senior musical theatre major from Jasper.

Performances also will be presented Jan. 27-28 at 7:30 p.m. and Jan. 29 at 2:30 p.m.
