08 Sep Huntington University and Katrina
Huntington University will accept up to 20 college students displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Tuition, fees, room, and board will be waived for these students for the Fall 2005 semester. Students may enroll in classes, either full- or part-time, on a special emergency transfer basis until September 17.
Transcripts will not be required, but students are asked to present a current, valid ID from an accredited college or university damaged or closed by Hurricane Katrina. Students interested in enrolling should contact the Registrar at (260) 359-4011.
Huntington University is also organizing volunteers through the Joe Mertz Center to assist with clean up and recovery. Plans are being made to send work teams to the Gulf Coast region in October, January, and March. A special fund has been established to support these volunteer efforts. Interested donors should contact the Advancement Office, or direct their gifts to Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund, Huntington University, 2303 College Avenue, Huntington, Indiana 46750.
Huntington University students and personnel are raising funds and collecting supplies for a variety of relief organizations and churches serving storm-stricken areas.
