Color me pink—On April 7, some current members and alumni of Birmingham-Southern’s Pi Beta Phi sorority went to Atlanta to participate in The Color Run. The Color Run was a 5K race that gathered the community together to benefit Children's Health Services in Atlanta. Along the route, at each 1K marker, racers got doused with colored magic dust (a naturally made powder). “It was a great weekend, and we loved representing BSC while we were in another state,” commented Lauren Fugit (pictured on back row, center), a junior psychology major from Vestavia Hills.
Outdoor leadership adventure—The Hess Center for Leadership and Service at Birmingham-Southern recently hosted a Saturday retreat at Ruffner Park Nature Preserve for students enrolled in LS 200 Theory and Practice, the gateway course to the college’s Leadership Studies Program. The students were accompanied by Dr. Tynes Cowan '85, assistant professor of English, who’s teaching LS 200 this semester (far left); Kristin Harper '92, director of the Bunting Center for Engaged Study and Community Action; James Randolph '10, coordinator of the Leadership Studies Office (third from left); and Kent Andersen, Hess Center director (third from right). The retreat focused on team-building exercises and self reflection.
