K-STATE OFFERING HELP TO STUDENTS DISPLACED BY RECENT FLOODING
K-State is offering assistance to students who have been displaced by recent flooding in the Manhattan area.
"The university is aware that some students have been permanently and unexpectedly displaced from their places of residence. Some have lost most, if not all, personal belongings, while others are unable to return to their residence until an inspection for safety and insurance purposes has been conducted," said Heather Reed, director of student life. "The K-State family understands the serious and disruptive impact this has on those who have been displaced."
Orientation and enrollment for fall 2010 freshmen continues on campus through Friday. Currently, 4,200 students have registered for orientation.
All freshmen will receive a copy of Suzanne Collins' book "The Hunger Games" as a newly introduced part of the first-year experience program. To read more about this program, visit http://www.k-state.edu/media/k-statement/vol32/52610book.html
