A welcome alternative—Birmingham-Southern students Susan Fant of Gadsden (right) and Miriam Smith of Mountain Brook measure a square of sheetrock as part of an alternative spring break project in Moss Point, Miss. Four of the college's staff members accompanied a group of 11 BSC students to Moss Point March 25-31 to work with Safe Harbor United Methodist Church doing demolition and rebuilding on homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Fant is a freshman accounting major; Smith is a sophomore English major. The college's Office of Service Learning sponsors a weeklong alternative spring break each year.
