Houston houses evacuees
When Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf
Coast last week, devastating areas of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi,
thousands were left without homes.
Gulf Coast's displaced students
to find new home at UH
The University opened its doors to
students who cannot return to universities devastated by hurricane Katrina
last week, enrolling 464 students as of Friday night, Director of Admissions
Susanna Finnell said.
Campus community helps victims
in a number of ways
Various UH organizations and colleges
are developing projects to aid in supporting the relief efforts many Houstonians
have already begun.
Evacuess face new array of obstacles
Although college students who evacuated
from universities in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana damaged by Hurricane
Katrina are happy that Houston is offering relief, some are still experiencing
problems enrolling in a new university.
Campus adapts to new faces
Displaced students from areas affected
by Hurricane Katrina will soon have a new academic home at UH. Parking
and overcrowding are concerns with more than 31,500 commuter students already
on campus, but Provost Donald Foss said he hopes for a smooth transition.
Green Wave athletes may move to
UH Athletics Director Dave Maggard
and Rice University Athletics Director Bobby May met with officials from
Tulane University on Saturday to discuss allowing Green Wave athletes to
study at either university while still competing for Tulane, the Houston
Chronicle reported Sunday.
