Impact of Gustav on Gulf Coast colleges

As an alum of the graduate business school at Tulane, I followed the events in New Orleans during and after Hurricane Katrina.  Three years later, it’s not just the weather that seems to have improved.  Last Thursday, Tulane cancelled classes for this week and ordered an evacuation of the campus on Saturday, with students who were unable to obtain a flight home from New Orleans being evacuated to Jackson State University in Mississippi.
