Project brings together University of Alabama students, veterans

TUSCALOOSA – A group of interior design students from the University of Alabama sat around a table Thursday playing games with veterans who live at the Tuscaloosa Veterans Affairs Medical Center’s new skilled nursing care cottage.

But for the students, playing games with the veterans, handing out popcorn and singing carols to them during the holidays is just a small part of the group’s partnership with the Tuscaloosa VA. The students are using the experience to learn about the veterans’ special needs and what they may require in the interior design of senior centers, nursing homes and hospital environments.
