<< Return to SBL Forum Archive Katrina And Academic Institutions

1 September 2005

The academic year is going to be severely impacted at many Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi seminaries, universities, and community colleges. Mayor Nagin of New Orleans estimated on ABC's "Good Morning America," that it may be 12-16 weeks before people can come back.
