THE BEST OF 
TIMES... 

Homecoming included a week fvill 
of exciting contests and entertaining 
events. Each day of Homecoming 
week was designated as a period of 
history. Organizations competed in 
daily activities for the coveted Home- 
coming title. "Cave Day" kicked off 
the week followed by the "Miss Row- 
dy" competition which reqmred the 
students to recite a love poem in 
hopes of capturing Rowdy's attention. 
The lucky "lady" turned out to be 
Stephen Mitchell, the representative 
from Alphi Chi Omega. The shoot out 
designated "Western Day"; with laser 
guns in hand, the students represent- 
ing each organization attempted to 
shoot their competitors. SAE placed 
first thanks to the sharp shooting 

skills of Kitty Collier. Faculty mem- 
bers competed in "Fifties Day" by do- 
ing what they do 

best. ..strutting 

their stuff. The 

popular lip sync 

was held Thursday 

night with organi- 
zations imitating 

different bands. 

AOPi won with 

their rendition of 

"The Devil Went 

Down to Georgia". 

Friday night was 

the bonfire with 

the cheerleaders 

hosting the final 

cheer-off between 

the organizations. 

The day of the 

game , floats were 

displayed up and 

down Bruno Drive. 

ZTA's creative in- 
terpretation of the 

homecoming 

theme won first 

place. At the game, 
the Panthers cap- 
tured an easy vic- 
tory over Faulkner 
State. Homecom- 
ing 1990 was a suc- 
cessful and memo- 
rable event. 




With a rose in his mouth, Stephen Mitchell, AXO' 
represenUtive, captures first place in the Miss Rowdy 
competition. 



Showing a look of confidence, Frank Dominick, representing 
AOPi, displays what he considers to be the perfect Miss Rowdy 
costume.

'SVS presents OUTREACH DAY 



Students, faculty and staff 
members at Birmingham- 
Southern combined efforts in 
over 38 project sites around the 
city. 

Coordinated by the 'Southern 
Volunteer Services, volunteers 
were placed in projects that in- 
cluded taking children to the zoo 
and the Red Mountain Museum 
fair, painting apartments and 
houses for low-income or dis- 
abled families, picking up trash 
on the roadways, taking animals 
from the Humane Society to 



nursing homes, and providing a 
basketball clinic at the city's 
family court. 

Birmingham-Southern is 
proud of the success of Outreach 
Day 1989 and the motivation of 
the volunteers to get involved in 
community life to serve toward a 
common good. Through the ef- 
forts of Outreach Day, the most 
important accomplishment was 
to expose people to a small part 
of what they can continue to ex- 
perience for a lifetime.

Alpha Chi Omega was founded at De- 
Pauw University in Greencastle, Indi- 
ana, on October 15, 1885. The Alpha 
Omega Chapter at Birmingham-South- 
ern was founded in 1926. There are now 
over one-hundred thirty-five Alpha Chi 
Omega Collegiate chapters in the U.S. 
with a total membership of over 100,000. 

The colors of Alpha Chi Omega are 
scarlet red and olive green. The flower is 
the red carnation. A golden lyre set with 



twenty one pearls is the symbol and offi- 
cial badge. 

Each year, the Alpha Chi's at 'South- 
ern host the largest campus wide party, 
CASINO, to benefit several philanthro- 
pies including Cystic Fibrosis and Easter 
Seals. They also host an Alumni Appre- 
ciation Tea and a parent-daughter Tea 
annually. Alpha Chi's are involved in all 
areas of campus activities including 
scholastic honoraries, service organiza- 



tions, student government groups, fine 
arts, housing staff, athletics, and manj 
others. 

Alpha Chi Omega offers lifetime mem- 
bership to her initiates, experience in 
self-government, encouragement ofj 
members to develop to their greatest po- 
tential in all aspects of life, acquaintance 
with many avenues of service to others, 
and commitment to high moral and 
mental standards.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority was 
■ounded on January 15, 1908 at Howard 
University by a group of young black 
vomen. This event initiated the move- 
Tient of Greek letter sororities among 
alack women in America. On that date 
;here were only nine members of the so- 



rority. Since then Alpha Kappa Alpha 
Sorority, Inc. has grown to include not 
only black women in the United States, 
but women of all races from all over the 
world. Our ever-expanding membership 
includes women from Germany, Africa, 
the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Korea, 



Central America, and just recently, Ja- 
maica. Throughout the years Alpha 
Kappa Alpha's chief aim has been "Ser- 
vice to all Mankind". Nu Delta will cer- 
tainly keep this point at the focus of our 
program as we enter this new decade 
with fervent enthusiasm and sisterhood.

ALPHA OMICRON PI 



fil@ & 












Alpha Omicron Pi, a national women's 
fraternity, was founded on January 2, 
1896 at Barnard College in New York. 
Tau Delta Chapter was established at 
Birmingham-Southern College in 1925. 
Alpha Omicron Pi's colors are red and 
white, and the flower is the Jacqueminot 
rose. The panda is our national mascot 
and Raggedy Ann is Tau Delta's mascot. 



AOPi stresses individuality and 
strives for excellence. Tau Delta encour- 
ages its members to participate in a wide 
realm of activities. Philanthropy is a 
critical part of our chapter, too. Tau Del- 
ta's members are involved in many ser- 
vice programs organized by the college, 
and as an Alpha Omicron Pi chapter, we 
support our national philanthropy, Ar- 



thritis Research. Our commitment al- 
lows us to excel on the college campus 
and in the Birmingham community. Na- 
tionally, Tau Delta has been recognized 
for its accomplishments in Rush and 
scholarship. Alpha Omicron Pi encour- 
ages the pursuit of excellence and friend- 
ship in the lives of its members.

Chi Omega was founded at the Univer- 
sity of Arkansas on April 5, 1859. Chi 
Omega has the largest number of active 
collegiate chapters with 175 chapters 
throughout the nation as well as having 
the largest number of active members 
with a total membership well over 
180,000. Upon receiving its charter on 
February 18, 1989, the Omicron Lambda 
Chapter proudly became the ninth chap- 



ter of Chi Omega in the State of Ala- 
bama. The Chi Omega colors are cardi- 
nal and straw, and the flower is the white 
carnation. 

Each chapter of Chi Omega chooses its 
own philanthropy. Omicron Lambda has 
adopted Hannah Home, a local center 
for abused women, as its philanthropy. 
The chapter is also involved in one com- 
munity service project per month. At the 



other end of the spectrum, Chi Omega 
participates in social events throughout 
the school year. In the fall there are mix- 
ers with all fraternities as well as winter 
and spring formals. For the pledges we 
have a pledge retreat and secret Owl Pals 
promoting sisterhood. Chi Omega is a 
lifelong experience that inspires friend- 
ship and personal growth.

Kappa Delta was founded in Farm- 
ville, Virginia, in 1887 at State Female 
Normal School, now Longwood College. 
National membership now exceeds 
110,000 women across the country. The 
Alpha Upsilon chapter at Birmingham- 
Southern was founded in 1930. The sym- 
bol of Kappa Delta is the white rose and 
the colors are olive green and pearl 
white. Kappa Delta's national philan- 



thropies are the national committee for 
the Prevention of Child Abuse and the 
Crippled Children's Hospital located in 
Richmond, Virginia. KD's at 'Southern 
support these philanthropies every year 
by participating in a Saint Patrick's Day 
fundraiser and by sponsoring a Swing- A- 
Thon. The Alpha Upsilon Chapter also 
participates in local philanthropic ac- 
tivities. Members volunteer weekly at 



the Ronald McDonald House where par- 
ents stay when their children are in the 
Children's Hospital. 

The Kappa Deltas also have three ex- 
citing parties each year. Steakfry is in 
the fall, Winter Formal is at Christmas- 
time and a riverboat cruise is in the 
spring. We encourage our members to be 
involved in all aspects of campus life as 
well as in community service activities.

Zeta Tau Alpha was founded in Farm- 
ville, Virignia in 1898. Our Alpha Nu 
chapter was established in 1922 and was 
the first sorority on the BSC campus. 
There are eight Zeta chapters in Ala- 
bama with 156 active chapters national- 

ly. 

Our colors are turquoise blue and 
Steele grey, and our jewel is the pearl. 
Our symbol is the crown and our mascot 
is the rabbit. Our national philanthropy 



is the Association of Retarded Citizens, 
which we support by sponsoring the Bat- 
tle of the Bands, an annual contest for 
campus rock music groups. 

The flower, the white violet, is cele- 
brated each year in the spring with the 
White Violet Formal. We have many 
other social activities, including a semi- 
formal, a theme party, and fraternity 
mixers. Zetas are a diverse group and are 
involved in many campus organizations 



and honoraries. The chapter has re- 
ceived national recognition for its aca- 
demic achievements and campus recog- 
nition for its philanthropic and athletic 
efforts. The success of the chapter is due 
to the love and support which the Zeta 
sisters feel as they live by the founding 
precept of "love, the greatest of all 
things."

SORORITY TOWNHOUSE CAMPAIGN 




The 1989-1990 academic year 
has been an exciting one for the 
members of Birmingham-South- 
ern's sororities. In the fall a cam- 
paign was begun to build town- 
houses for each sorority on campus. 
Each sorority's campaign has been 
led by alumnae from their chapters 
to give them information about the 
campaign and to ask them for their 
help in making this project possi- 
ble. Although the individual cam- 
paigns have looked to their alum- 
nae for the main support, the ac- 
tives and their parents have also 
played an important role in the 
campaign. The sororities have had 
fundraising projects which ranged 
from carwashes to chili suppers. 
Birmingham-Southern's Panhel- 
lenic sponsored a Christmas Ba- 
zaar in early December which sold 
handmade Christmas items and 
gifts raising $2,500 dollars in only 
two days. Actives have put in 
countless hours of service in the 
campaign office typing donor 
cards, stuffing pockets for mail- 
ings, pricing bazaar items, filing, 
addressing coffee invitations, writ- 
ing thank-you notes, etc. There has 
been a great deal of Panhellenic 
spirit and friendly competition 
shown throughout the entire cam- 
paign. 

Each townhouse will have three 
floors. The top floor will be resi- 
dential and will house eight officers 
in four rooms with connecting 
baths. There is also a laundry room 
on the third floor complete with 
laundry tub and a drip dry area. 
The second floor and front en- 
trance includes the formal living 
room, dining room, kitchen, and 
powder room. The first floor and 
rear entrance is made up of the 
chapter room, study room, bath- 
room facilities and storage. Chap- 
ter rooms will be large enough to 
seat 85 women comfortably with 
room for a stage or podium. Each 
townhouse will have a total of 4,950 
square feet. The complex will be 
built in a cluster which begins at 
the Planetarium and runs behind 
the new Bruno Residence Hall. 

Our sororities are certainly look- 
ing forward to their new homes!

The Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity was 
founded in 1865 by Otis Allen Glaze- 
brook, Erskine Mayo Ross, and Alfred 
Marshall at Virginia Military Institute. 
Today ATO ranks as one of the largest 
fraternities in the U.S. and certainly in 
the Southeast, where ATO chapters ex- 
ist on almost every major campus. The 
ATO national fraternity provides a 
unique opportunity for undergraduates 
to grow in a brotherhood founded upon 
Christian principles. The Alpha Tau 
Omega Fraternity also offers special pro- 
grams for leadership, scholarship, and 
fellowships through the Leadershape 



Program and the Alpha Tau Omega 
Foundation. 

The Beta Beta chapter was founded 
here at BSC in 1885. The chapter has 
experienced many ups and downs in its 
history. Most recently the chapter has 
experienced a tremendous turn around 
and has become the one to watch on cam- 
pus. We are proud of our diversity as a 
fraternity, and we are equally proud of 
the strong bond of brotherhood that we 
maintain among each of our members. 
The most outrageous parties on campus 
are the Apha Tau Omega's, from Luau 
when our house is transformed into a 



tropical paradise, to Viking Part; 
ATO's throw-down in the Nordic trad: 
tion that was founded at our chaptt 
over twenty years ago. 

Assistance and loyalty, though, is rea|i 
ly the core of being an Alpha Tau Omej 
man. Based upon ideals that are bono 
able and timeless, our fraternity is ded 
cated to instilling in each brother, tl 
pride and the desire for excellence that 
worthy of the Alpha Tau Omega badg 
So if you want to join a fraternity whe 
every member makes a positive diffe 
ence, it's ATOnly!

GREEK LIFE 




We regret that, due to a last minute problem with their composite, the Chi Sigma Chi Fraternity was not able to be justly re- 
presented. Their first year on campus was extremely successful and we wish them luck in the future. 



Greeks 33 



In 1865, in the middle of a war-torn 
community which had been victimized 
by enemy raids during the war between 
the states, four students at Washington 
College (now Washington and Lee) in 
Lexington, Virginia founded Kappa Al- 
pha Order. The founders of KA sought to 
preserve the ideals of the country gentle- 
men of their time. They perpetuated this 
goal in establishing an order of Christian 
Knights. Stress is laid upon the fact that 
Kappa Alpha is an Order, religious in 
feeling and rooted in tradition of high 
personal achievement. There is no 



Kappa Alpha fraternity. An order is a 
society of persons united by possession 
of a mutual distinction; the recognition 
of something previously acquired. It is a 
group of men aspiring to the qualities of 
the true gentleman. Only those who pos- 
sess those qualities and those who care to 
develop them, can fully enjoy Kappa Al- 
pha and grow in character in its member- 
ship. The traits of the modern KA gen- 
tlemen are reflective of knights who de- 
rived the chivalric code of the Middle 
Ages. The chivalric code compelled a 
knight to be brave, honorable, and true 



to his promised work; to be loyal to his 
feudal lord, to defend his church; to pro- 
tect the weak, aid the poor and seek jus- 
tice, and to revere womanhood. The spir- 
it of chivalry continues to exist in the 
concept of the gentleman with his attri- 
butes of honor, faith, justice, regard for 
truth, consideration of others, reverence 
for womanhood, and courtesy and good 
judgment in everyday activities. As it is 
often said, chivalry is alive today; and it 
can easily be traced to the gentlemen of 
Kappa Alpha Order.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon was founded on 
March 9, 1856 at the University of Ala- 
bama and has remained one of the na- 
tion's respected fraternities. The 
Alabma Iota Chapter was established at 
Birmingham-Southern on November 23, 
1878. Founded on the basis of intellectu- 
al and Christian ideals, the fraternity 
has always inspired its members to strive 
for wisdom, growth, and maturity. 
Through its motto, The True Gentle- 
man, the fraternity enlarges the virtues 
of goodwill, justice, and honor. In its 



scholastic endeavors and athletic 
achievements, SAE has maintained the 
level of excellence which has gained it 
many high honors and awards. The 
chapter's high level of commitment to 
community service has greatly benefited 
such organizations as Muscular Dystro- 
phy, Multiple Sclerosis, and Cystic Fi- 
brosis. SAE's campus involvement is 
consistently seen in honoraries such as 
Phi Beta Kappa, Mortar Board, and 
ODK; and, also in organizations such as 
the SGA, PSSO, Student Judiciary, and 



the Triangle Club. Although the chapter 
has been named one of the top six in the 
nation for the past six years, all of these 
achievements pale in comparison to the 
brotherhood felt among members of the 
chapter. Through their friendships and 
dedication to the chapter, the brothers 
of Alabama Iota continue to maintain 
and improve the high standards synomo- 
mous with SAE and to contribute fine, 
young leaders to society.

On January 1, 1869, following Civil 
strife that racked the land, three cadets 
at Virginia Military Institute sought to 
lay the groundwork for an ideal society 
of men bound together by bonds of 
friendship and dedicated to governing 
all acts by honor. They founded The Le- 
gion of Honor, commonly known as Sig- 
ma Nu Fraternity. They based their new 
union on three cardinal principles — 
Love, Truth, and Honor. By studying, 
understanding, and applying these prin- 
ciples, better rnen would be produced. 
Many years later, the fraternity has be- 
come a national leader among Greek Or- 
ganizations. The men of the Lambda 
Theta chapter, chartered on May 2, 

36 Greeks 



1987, seek to apply the same fundamen- 
tal principles to our lives that our 
founders set forth. Central to our success 
is a desire to balance scholarship with an 
active social life. In each of our four years 
on campus, the chapter has won the Phi 
Eta Sigma award for pledge class schol- 
arship, and the last two years we have 
earned the Stephen Noser award for aca- 
demic excellence in addition to achieving 
the third highest GPA of all Sigma Nu 
chapters in the nation. Yet our social cal- 
endar remains strong with Pledge 
Dance, Ski Lodge, Chuck's Place parties, 
the traditional White Rose Formal, 
Shipwreck, and other occasions provid- 
ing a distinctive fraternity experience. 



Philanthropic activities include the an- 
nual "Tunes for Tots," work in Bir- 
mingham's City Stages festival, and fun- 
draisers for the American Cancer Soci- 
ety. We insist on visibility, evidenced by 
the fact that Sigma Nu brothers are the 
most involved group in campus activi- 
ties, honoraries, and leadership posi- 
tions. Perhaps most importantly, howev- 
er, is the strong brotherhood we enjoy, 
unique to a group of our moderate size. 
In all, the Lambda Theta chapter looks 
back upon our success with pride and 
steps forward to a future no less impres- 
sive. 



Theta Chi Fraternity was founded at 
Norwich University in Vermont on April 
10, 1856. Beta Xi Chapter was installed 
here at 'Southern on May 23, 1942. The- 
ta Chi encourages members to extend a 
helping hand to those who need it. They 
are involved in school service with mem- 
bers on Student Judiciary, P.S.S.O., Tri- 
angle Club, S.G.A., and other service or- 
ganizations. The brothers of Theta Chi 
support the Sheriffs Boys Ranch with 
an annual fundraiser and, more impor- 
tantly, with time spent with the kids on 
Saturday afternoons. They also work for 



Special Olympics. The brothers of Theta 
Chi also strive to gain academic excel- 
lence, consistently maintaining a high 
average and placing members in distin- 
guished honoraries, including Phi Beta 
Kappa. Excellence on the field as well as 
in the classroom is a high priority with 
Theta Chi. They won the All-Sports Tro- 
phy last year and have won Greek Week 
for the past several years. All these 
achievements pale in comparison to the 
most important factor: Brotherhood. 
Theta Chi's live, play and work together 
in an atmosphere of great friendship. 



They teach their members truth, tem- 
perance, and tolerance, while inspiring 
friendships that will last a lifetime. The- 
ta Chi will continue its rich tradition in 
the future never ceasing in its efforts to 
grow and improve. Every man who has 
worn the military red and white of Theta 
Chi became a better man because of it, 
and Theta Chi will continue to nurture 
excellence in its members because Theta 
Chi is for life.

READ MY LIPS 



President Bush comes to 
BSC to honor Conservancy. 

"A city set on a hill cannot be hid." 

"It was more below a hill — tucked away in a long forgotten 
corner of Birmingham-Southern College in Birmingham. The 
old steam plant building that once heated the Hilltop and 
known more for Rat Laboratory experiments in past years, 
breathed life once again Friday, two days before Earth Day 
1990. It didn't cough and wheeze with a wasteful energy source, 
but with a clean bit of fresh air and national media exposure." 

"Now used as a recycling center by the Birmingham-South- 
ern Conservancy, the building was the setting as President of 
the United States George Bush presented the Conservancy 
with the 121st "Point of Light" award of the "1000 Points of 
Light Initiative." The Conservancy, a student-faculty group 
promoting environmental preservation, was recognized by 
President Bush for its recycling and environmental education 
efforts. The organization was also featured by Resource Recy- 
cling, a magazine from Portland, Oregon, in its April edition, as 
one of seven colleges making outstanding strides in environ- 
mental preservation and recycling." 

"The Point of Light award is given six days a week to indi- 
viduals or groups who take steps to curb drug abuse, illiteracy, 
inadequate education, environmental decay, homelessness, 
hunger, AIDS, and other social concerns. The awards purpose 
is to show, through recognition, that steps can be taken to 
successfully combat social problems facing the world today. 
According to a White House spokesperson, Birmingham- 
Southern's award was only the third Point of Light the Presi- 
dent has presented in person."

SPECIAL GUESTS . . . 



Famous Soviet Dissident Natan Sharansky 



Natan Sharansky, the famous Sovi- 
et dissident, presented a public lec- 
ture on "The Continuous Struggle for 
Human Rights," at Birmingham- 
Southern College's Bill Battle Colise- 
um this past year. His lecture was a 
presentation of The Program in Juda- 
ic Studies and Middle Eastern Cul- 
ture. 

Sharansky is probably the most 
famous of "refuseniks" of the Soviet 
Union, standing up and speaking out 
against the injustices towards Jews in 
Russia. After applying for an exit visa 
in 1973, Sharansky was the subject of 
constant harassment by the KGB. "In 
light of recent political developments 
in Russia, Sharansky's role in chang- 
ing that country's national thinking 
over the past 17 years is of particular 
significance," said BSC President 
Neal Berte. 

"We are indeed pleased to have the 
man who became a leader, a symbol, 
and a source of inspiration to others in 
their quest for freedom, as the Judaic 
Studies and Middle Eastern Culture 
lecturer. Sharansky's message should 
have universal appeal," Berte said. 

In March, 1977, Sharansky became 
the focus of international attention 
when he was abducted by the KGB 
and arrested on espionage and treason 
charges. After his arrest, he spent nine 
years in various prisons and labor 
camps. During these nine years, his 
wife, Avital, who had been able to 
leave for Jerusalem in 1974, worked 
worldwide for his freedom. 

Thousands of people wrote to Shar- 
ansky during his imprisonment, and 
even though these letters were never 
received by him, they were still seen 
by the government, and served as a 
reminder that Sharansky's situation 
was worldwide. 

Sharansky joined his wife in Jerusa- 
lem following his February 1986 re- 
lease by the Soviets. He is the leader 



of the Soviet Jews presently living in 
Israel. 

This is the third year for the Pro- 
gram in Judaic Studies and Middle 
Eastern Culture at Birmingham- 
Southern.

Paul A. Volcker, Former Federal 

Reserve Chairman 

Paul \ Volcker, the former Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, told a packed Munger 
Auditorium audience that steps must be taken to reduce the so-called twin deficits - the federal budget deficit and trade 
deficit. Not doing so could lead to a lower standard of living for the next generation, he said. 

"Ten or 20 years from now, what are Americans going to say about how this generation has handled all this?" Volcker 

asked. , • r .. » 

On the expanding economy, he said, "If we play our cards right, we may have an expansion for years to come. 
Volcker was at Birmingham-Southern as the B. A. Monaghan Lecturer in Economics, and his appearance was also under 

the sponsorship of the Edward Lee Norton Board of Advisors for Business Education at The College. His topic was "The 

Future of Economics in the United States." 

In addition to the formal address, Volcker attended a luncheon where he answered questions from community leaders 

and the media, and he later met with students in an informal setting to have dialogue on issues in economics. The Volcker 

visit received widespread press coverage. t,- • . c t-u 

The Monaghan lectureship has attracted outstanding economists and business leaders to address Birmingham-bouth- 

ern students faculty and the public. Previous lecturers have included economists: Wayne Angell, Juanita Kreps, Herbert 

Stein Murray Weidenbaum, William Allen, and Director of the Securities and Exchange Commission, George Kundahl. 
The lectureship is made possible through an endowment provided by Vulcan Materials in 1981 and given in the name of 

Mr. Monaghan in appreciation for his years of service to the company.

NATIONAL 

CHAMPIONSHIP 




The Birmingham-Southern Panthers 
won the National Association of Inter- 
collegiate Athletics NAIA national 
championship in an 88 to 80 victory over 
Wisconsin Eau Claire in title play at 
Kansas City. It was the first National 
Championship for the college and the 
first National Basketball Championship 
for any Birmingham area college or uni- 
versity. The team, picked number three 
in the conference pre-season ratings, 
went all the way to win the national 
championship coached by Head Coach 
Duane Reboul, in his first year at BSC. 
Key victories along the way were an early 
season at home victory over number one 
ranked David Lipscomb University, 117- 
110, followed by a semi-final victory over 
number one, national tournament seed 
David Lipscomb 98-86. Coach Reboul 



was named NAIA District 27 Coach of 
the year. 

Stacy Butler finished his Basketball 
career as only the second two-year player 
in the history of the College to score over 
1,000 points. He also earned first team 
All-American status, was national tour- 
nament MVP, and a member of the all 
tournament National Team. Butler was 
designated as the NAIA District 27 Male 
Athlete of the year and signed a profes- 
sional contract with Canadian Basket- 
ball League with plans to play in the Eu- 
ropean Basketball League in the fall. 
Joining Butler on the All-Tournament 
Team was Fred Martinear. Brent Carter, 
a Senior co-captain of the team, was one 
of the best point guards in the teams his- 
tory. 

The Men's Basketball Team members 



were recognized by the Lakeshore Foun- 
dation as the Male Athletes of the year 
for the State of Alabama and received 
the Sington Trophy. The team was rec- 
ognized in comments by President 
George Bush at a Birmingham luncheon 
he was attending, and the team received 
proclamations and a "victory celebra- 
tion" parade from the City of Birming- 
ham, and Mayor Richard Arrington and 
the Alabama Legislature. 

Mr. Dale Brown, Head Basketball 
Coach at Louisiana State University, 
was the annual Black Tie Club speaker 
for the Basketball awards program, and 
as a result of his visit announced The

The School of Nursing here at Birming- 
lam-Southern College was the only pro- 
;ram of its kind in the country. Modeled 
ifter the teacher-practitioner program at 
lush University, it combined liberal arts 
md sciences with nursing courses, granting 
bur-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing 
legrees. In the Rush model, professors 
aught classes while continuing to work, 
,hus allowing professors to remain up-to- 
iate in their fields. The nursing instructors 
lere at BSC were leaders in their respective 
lelds, and the Rush model provided for 
,heir continued professional growth in their 
specialties, while giving students outstand- 
ng role models, of teachers, practitioners, 
ind nurse leaders. 

The Birmingham-Southern College 
School of Nursing was approved by the Ala- 



bama Board of Nursing in February 1981 
and accepted its first students in Septem- 
ber 1982. The first class to complete the 
program graduated in May 1985. The 
school was affiliated with AMI Brookwood 
Medical Center. Brookwood provided clini- 
cal experiences for students such as inten- 
sive care units, medical/surgical, mental 
health, operating room, and labor and de- 
livery, as well as establishing scholarships 
ranging from $1,000 to $8,000 per year. In 
October 1985, the school received full ac- 
credidation from the National League of 
Nursing; this accredidation continued to 
the programs end, evidence of the pro- 
gram's excellence. 

In the Spring of 1988, Birmingham- 
Southern announced that due to the low 
enrollment in the Nursing School, the 



School would be closed. This low enroll- 
ment was a reflection of a nation wide de- 
crease in nursing school enrollments and 
the BSC School of Nursing became another 
casualty in the nationwide nursing short- 
age. The last students completed the pro- 
gram in January 1990 and graduated in 
May 1990, bringing the total number of 
RNs graduated from the program to one 
hundred and two. 

The Nursing Class of 1990 wishes to ex- 
press its deep appreciation and gratitude to 
AMI Brookwood Medical Center, Dr. Mar- 
garet Millsap, Nancy Magnuson, Patsy 
Schmith, Keeta Easterwood, Eleanor Bat- 
tles, Pat Furner, Bobbi Dillard, and Gwen 
Holmes for their unending dedication to 
the students and to the uncompromised ex- 
cellence of the program.

We regret, that due to unforseen cicumstances, the 1989-1990 Southern Accent is both 
later in arriving and smaller in size than usual. Although resourses were limited, we hope that 
we were able to compile a book which accurately recaps both the everyday and the exciting 
events of the past year on the Hilltop. 

We would like to express our thanks to the following people for their time and effort:
