Gaines Family Farmstead​, which was founded by BSC alum Dewar Gaines, produces premium superfood dog treats and is featured on Amazon’s Small Business Gift Guide this year. Visit the company's page on Amazon to learn more and to join in celebrating this incredible achievement!

Before Dewar Gaines '14 founded Gaines Family Farmstead, he was a business student at Birmingham-Southern College. Gaines says: "Birmingham-Southern is the best thing that ever happened to me as far as business goes. The liberal arts education fostered a way to think out of the box. It didn't necessarily prepare me for one career or another. I know I can do anything right now."
You may not think of classical music when you think of Alabama music, but's a thing, and our next patch, Brian C. Moon, is proof of it. A Birmingham native, Brian is the Associate Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at UAB - The University of Alabama at Birmingham. He has a deep background in music, studying it as an undergraduate at UAB and receiving a Masters in Music Composition form Birmingham-Southern College. In addition to his composing he has taught music courses at both UAB and BSC. He is contributing member of the Birmingham Art Music Alliance and also plays and writes songs for several Birmingham rock bands. Brian's contribution to patchwork symphony is "La Chose Verte," a contemplative piano and violin piece, slated to be recorded at Cartographer Records at Alabama Contemporary Art Center by two Alabama musicians this winter.

Check out some of Brian's composition work here:

Robyn Gulley ’20, legislative correspondent for U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, speaks about resilience for the 100 minutes on the Hilltop series in 2018 - link in comments.

“My Uncle Mark had a way of laughing and smiling through the pain,” she says. “He taught my sister and I how to be resilient in our weakness. My world was shaken by his loss. But I told myself: I’m going to live my life as a testimony to him, so that when I’m weak, I can walk in the strength that he walked in.”

As BSC celebrates The Year of the Ginkgo – the 65th anniversary of the planting of our signature ginkgo trees – we’ve selected a word of the month that captures a key part of the BSC experience. November’s word is Resilience. Read about how BSC alum Emily Kyzer Browne ’00, a pediatric nurse practitioner at St. Jude helps her patients to cultivate resilience. (Link in comments.)


On National Mentoring Day, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Panther Partnerships program at Birmingham-Southern, started by former BSC President Linda Flaherty-Goldsmith in 2012. This structured mentoring program helps students to make meaningful connections with alumni and friends of the College, who offer career advice and coaching for the next generation of business and community leaders. Students selected for Panther Partnerships also participate in professional development seminars on networking, resumé-building, and interview skills. A mentor can make all the difference in a student’s life as they help them pursue a path that best suits their skills and interests.


This evening, Harvard Law Professor Randall Kennedy will speak at the BSC Harrison Honors Convocation on “Shall We Overcome?” addressing race and contemporary American society. Kennedy teaches courses on criminal law and race relations. He is an alumnus of Yale Law School and served as a law clerk for Justice Thurgood Marshall. His most recent book, “SAY IT LOUD!” is a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.

This event is free and open to the public, on Thursday, Oct 20 at 7:30 p.m. It will also be livestreamed on the BSC website - link in comments below.

Kennedy’s upcoming book “From Protest to Law” will be a comprehensive legal history of the civil rights movement. It focuses on Walker v. City of Birmingham (1967), the Supreme Court case that resolved the legality of Martin Luther King’s Good Friday arrest in 1963, among other cases. In a rare departure, the Court ruled against the Movement, and Kennedy explains why. While in Birmingham, Kennedy will complete research for the book.

On Tuesday, Oct. 4, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Merrill v. Milligan, a case about whether Alabama’s recently enacted congressional map violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act (VRA). Did you know the case has two BSC connections? While Merrill refers to Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, Milligan refers to Evan Milligan ’03, executive director of Alabama Forward, a statewide civic engagement table advancing efforts of nonpartisan organizations to expand the voter base, protect voting rights, and increase the accessibility of election systems. Arguing the state's case was Edmund LaCour '07, who was appointed Solicitor General of Alabama in May 2019. Milligan appeared on CBS Mornings earlier this week:

"My purpose has evolved again as I help others create and grow companies with a purpose bigger than their individual self. This is the real secret to success. Each of us has an opportunity to lead a life of significance, of purpose, of meaning." - Ron Johnsey, '71

In an interview with Birmingham Times, Bishop Jim Lowe '74 shares his memories of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church bombing and what motivates him today. “I have a desire in my heart to do all I can to help people to come to a true sincere love and respect of one another and deal with differences in such a way that tragedies like this will never have to occur again.”


Dr. Richard Rector, associate professor of psychology, recently gave a speech from the faculty to the class of 2026, sharing the importance of finding purpose, one of the key words for the Year of the Ginkgo, our yearlong celebration of what the ginkgo symbolizes, both worldwide and on the Hilltop. Read his speech on The BSC Blog.

All year, we will celebrate the alumni, students, faculty, and staff who grow and thrive here — in purpose, connection, resilience, caring, creativity, leadership, tenacity, and confidence. We want to hear from you. Tell us about alumni, faculty, staff, or students who embody each of the words of the year. Share in the comments or email [email protected].


Join us in celebrating the Year of the Ginkgo at Birmingham-Southern. The BSC ginkgo trees were planted on campus 65 years ago. Each month throughout this school year we will honor what the ginkgo symbolizes for BSC: purpose, connection, resilience, caring, creativity, leadership, tenacity, and confidence. September’s theme is purpose. What gives you a sense of purpose? For more history about the iconic ginkgo trees, visit our website (link in profile).

Congratulations to our faculty honored at Opening of School Assembly this morning! Assistant Professor of Political Science Dr. Clinton Jenkins received the Bob Whetstone Faculty Development Award, and Professor of Mathematics Dr. Bernadette Mullins received the David and Katy Smith Senior Faculty Award. Thank you for your work on the Hilltop!


In its 31st annual "Best Colleges" rankings lists released today, The Princeton Review has named BSC one of the best colleges and universities in the Southeast, in no small part due to faculty.

"Professors get high marks across the board. Students say, 'The professors here make BSC what it is” and add, 'They’re always willing to help you out and meet with you if you need extra help. They make the academic experience here completely fabulous and well worth the hard work you have to put into your studies.' Academic standards are considered rigorous, and students say BSC 'demands the best from the professors and the best from the students. The faculty is fantastic, and the campus is beautiful.'"
