Friday 6/24 - UAB and Custom Pizza

Students relaxing in the movie theater in Blazer Hall at UAB

Friday was a very packed day. It is necessary to mention that the majority of our afternoon trips are preceded by an entire morning of classes. H.A.S.S. students attend class from 8:00-11:30 every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Accordingly, by the time we arrived on UAB’s campus, we already had a full morning of classes.

Despite the students’ commitment to working hard during the morning, the H.A.S.S. scholars asked numerous questions to our tour guide at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. For many of our students who want to enter the field of medicine, UAB appears to be their current top choice for both undergraduate and graduate school. While on campus, the students had the opportunity to tour the entire undergraduate portion of UAB’s campus and even relax in the movie theatre located within one of the freshman dorms!

As soon as we returned to Indian Springs, Wendy and the other staff within the cafeteria had a surprise waiting for our students: THEY GOT TO MAKE THEIR DINNER! The H.A.S.S. students partnered up and designed their own pizzas, often splitting the pie right down the middle. There was so much pizza that Wendy gave the students "to go" boxes, and the kids took their work back to the dorms for an evening snack. Thank you so much, Indian Springs!
