The University of Idaho and Katrina

From the Spokesman Review's Betsy Russell's Eye on Boise blog Wednesday:

"From Idaho to Louisiana, and back...
Ten Louisiana college students were accepted at the University of Idaho after Hurricane Katrina closed down their schools – but the surprising thing is that seven of them were from Idaho, and had been attending Louisiana colleges. Three were from out of state. Of the 10, two have graduated, reported UI President Tim White, four returned to Louisiana this year, and four have stayed at the UI. White also entertained legislative budget writers with a video clip of a Fox News report on UI students who spent their spring break working to help victims of Hurricane Katrina, and who reported that seeing the difference they could make was better than Cancun any day."

Go you, Vandals! Go! You!
