Taking Care In Tuscaloosa, Ala.
One of the first activities of the new school year at the University of Alabama is Hands On Tuscaloosa, a morning of community service. On Sat., Aug. 25, students can choose to refurbish a neighborhood baseball diamond, clean-up a local high school, create a carnival or do something else worthwhile.
"We think it is important for students to get engaged as soon as they arrive on campus — both with each other and also with the Tuscaloosa community," says Wahnee Sherman, Director of the University's Community Service Center. Some 125 students are expected to participate.
