ASHLAND, Virginia, September 2. RANDOLPH-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia, is offering immediate assistance to college students who have been affected by Hurricane Katrina.
Many students have paid their tuition for the upcoming fall semester to one of the universities closed because of hurricane damage and refunds are uncertain at this time.
Therefore, Randolph-Macon College is offering free tuition and room for the 2005 fall semester to students who have this need. The college also has created additional residential spaces for these students if they need to live on campus. Randolph-Macon College opens later than many other universities: classes begin Monday, Sept. 5 and enrollments will be accepted until Friday, Sept. 9.
“Our hope is that this effort will provide some relief to those students who have been affected by this terrible disaster and give them the opportunity to begin or continue their education this fall without interruption,” said R-MC President Roger H. Martin. “I know our R-MC community will extend a warm welcome to them.”
All correspondence should be directed to Steven Nape, R-MC’s director of admissions at (804) 752-7305 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
