A group of University of Alabama students spent fall break in Panama City, Florida, helping with the recovery efforts following Hurricane Michael.
The trip was organized by the Beyond Bama: Alternative Breaks program, part of UA's Center for Service and Leadership. Students arrived in Panama City on Wednesday, Oct. 24, and assisted in clearing debris for three days before returning to campus on Sunday, Oct. 28.
Beyond Bama: Alternative Breaks organizes trips for the UA student body during fall, winter and spring breaks. Alternative Break trips allow students to travel to communities in parts of the country and the world, and engage in service and experiential learning during university breaks.
