Philanthropy Fundamentals: Greek members contribute to charities

University of Alabama sororities have raised over $460,000 for various national and local charities in the past year, said Hannah McBrayer, president of UA Panhellenic Association.

"This is due in part to their unwavering commitment to philanthropic endeavors, charity events, and fundraisers," McBrayer said. "Philanthropy is one of the pillars of our Greek system and is an important part of what makes our chapters the best in the nation." 

Kiffin to return to Knoxville with inspired Crimson Tide

Volunteer football.

Clowney’s departure left a gap in the program, then assistant coach Jason Lowe announced he would also be 
leaving shortly before the 2014-2015 season began. Alabama had lost two assistant coaches and it was scrambling to fill the void.
