ODU ACCEPTING ADMISSIONS APPLICATIONS FROM VICTIMS OF HURRICANE KATRINA

Old Dominion University will accept applications for admission from victims of Hurricane Katrina, university officials announced today.

With the hurricane causing complete devastation in parts of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi, numerous universities in these states have been unable as of yet to reopen for the fall semester. To accommodate students from the affected areas so they will not lose the semester, Old Dominion will continue to accept applications and faculty will assist such students with any missed classes. Old Dominion's fall semester began Aug. 27.

"We already have received an application from one student," noted President Roseann Runte. "We will also reach out to faculty from the universities which are now closed to see if they wish to join our research teams or to share our facilities."

Inquiries and applications should be directed to Alice McAdory, director of admissions, at 757-683-3685 or amcadory@odu.edu.
