* BACKGROUND :* In the days following Hurricane Katrina, the WVU community mobilized to help survivors of the disaster. Student organizations, led by SHAB , held a two-week, campus-wide fund-raiser for the American Red Cross. Other relief efforts included student-athlete collections, a raffle organized by journalism students, a School of Physical Education swim-a-thon, various benefit concerts, American Chemical Society Student Affiliates food drive and Student Government Association 84 Lumber Classic ticket sales. WVU organized blood drives and established a temporary medical clinic at Camp Dawson, a National Guard training facility in Preston County, to handle the healthcare needs of several hundred survivors from the New Orleans area. The College of Creative Arts held origami and steel drum workshops, and the Universitys African Ensemble provided entertainment. During the weekend, the remaining evacuees left the camp to reunite with their families. The University also opened its doors and offered free online courses to students displaced by the hurricane. The Office of Student Affairs and Department of English sponsored a public forum about lessons learned from the storm. Kim Colebank, the director of the Office of Service Learning Programs, is coordinating a trip to the hurricane-ravaged Gulf for Thanksgiving. Details will be released at a later date.
