UA Fraternity to Host Blood Drive
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The Delta Sigma Pi fraternity at The University of Alabama asks students, faculty and the Tuscaloosa community to participate in a blood drive from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, at the Life South Bloodmobile, which will be parked on the north side of the UA Quad.
Delta Sigma Pi seeks to help Life South make its daily goal of blood donations so that it can meet the blood supply needs of area hospitals. A blood donation from one person can help save up to three lives and, as part of the donation process, participants each receive a mini physical that includes a cholesterol screening, as well as checks of blood pressure, heart rate and iron levels.
The University of Alabama, a student-centered research university, is experiencing significant growth in both enrollment and academic quality. This growth, which is positively impacting the campus and the state's economy, is in keeping with UA's vision to be the university of choice for the best and brightest students. UA, the state's flagship university, is an academic community united in its commitment to enhancing the quality of life for all Alabamians.
