Because of the hurricane, Tulane U has had to close down for the semester. For Tulane students (or new students), this is a serious disruption. In a wonderful gesture, numerous universities are coming to the rescue, with offers of admission, classes via correspondence, and other help. The livejournal academics_anon has a list of all the universities that have offered assistance to Tulane students, and this list is constantly being updated. Since classes have already started in many universities, there isn't too much time to act though, so spread the word (and this link).
