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 hope 
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 of Katrina 
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 Houston
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.
