Tracking Colleges

Let's hope this starts a trend.

From the most excellent Spring Hill College (shouting caps from the college)
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Spring Hill College in Mobile, Ala. is offering to accommodate students displaced by the storm interested in continuing their education. The College is extending an offer to assist students from colleges and universities in the New Orleans and Mississippi Gulf Coast areas and other areas impacted by the hurricane by IMPLEMENTING AN EXPEDITED ENROLLMENT PROCESS through Friday, Sept. 9. STUDENTS MUST SHOW EVIDENCE THAT THEY HAVE BEEN DISPLACED FOM THEIR COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY BECAUSE OF THE HURRICANE. CLASSES CAN BEGIN IMMEDIATELY AND SPRING HILL WILL WORK WITH STUDENTS ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS IN REGARDS TO ABILITY TO PAY TUITION.
The college also promises to be understanding if applicants don't have all the usual documents handy.

Spring Hill understandably boasts that "U.S. News & World Report ranked Spring Hill College 12th among colleges and universities in the Southern region of the U.S. in terms of overall quality."
