New York, Iona College in New Rochelle enrolled several Tulane students yesterday, said Meghan Finn, an Iona spokeswoman. Syracuse University said it would enroll Tulane students at no charge, on a temporary basis, until Tulane reopens. Syracuse University is now working to arrange class schedules and local housing for 300 students from Tulane and other universities affected by Hurricane Katrina. SU College of Law will play a role in the relief effort. The college has notified the American Association of Law Schools and American Bar Association that it will, for the fall semester, take any Tulane or Loyola New Orleans students who have paid tuition to their home school and are in good standing. Details are still being worked out; more information is available by contacting the College at (315) 443-9580 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
