Message to TCU from Chancellor Victor J. Boschini Jr.
Dear TCU Community,
Devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana, Mississippi and
Alabama has left thousands homeless, businesses destroyed and
livelihoods uncertain. Universities in the area, including Tulane,
Xavier, Loyola, and Dillard, all located in New Orleans, have sustained
major damage and there is great uncertainty as to when they might
re-open. To that end, TCU is offering admission until Tuesday,
September 6 to Metroplex undergraduate students previously admitted to
a university severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina. I am asking that
each member of the TCU community be flexible in accommodating these
late arriving students and help them feel welcome. Although we are at
our maximum for this year’s freshman class, we feel a great sense of
duty to offer this gesture of goodwill to these college students.
In addition to these efforts, TCU’s Student Affairs division (Community
Outreach/Service Learning and University Ministries) is coordinating an
additional response to the disaster. A full accounting of their efforts
