Helping the hurricane victims - Franciscan University

Franciscan University will be accepting as many as twenty students whose schools have been closed as a result of Hurricane Katrina. The students will not be paying any tuition to Franciscan, as they have already paid tuition to their own institutions. The city of Steubenville has opened up housing nearby for the students so that they can stay within walking distance of the University. Each student's credits will be automatically transferred to their original institution as well.

Perhaps some of my readers can note some of the concrete actions that their employer, school, area are taking as well?

I believe Catholic University is doing something similar, though it sounds like they're a bit stingier about tuition (*surprise*). I met with the dean of the Undergraduate Arts and Sciences and she mentioned something off-handedly about students from Louisiana coming late (and thus I assume hurricane victems).

Furthermore, there have been campuswide prayer and charity events.
