Displaced students from New Orleans

Many colleges and universities have welcomed displaced students from New Orleans, giving the students an opportunity to continue their studies. According to a recent graduate of Brown University that I know, a number of these students have used Facebook to reintegrate themselves quickly into a new community. You can change your campus affiliation from Tulane to New York University, and there you are: a whole new world of "virtual neighbors."

But what of the natives of New Orleans who live around the country? I met a Dartmouth student last week who evacuated with her parents. Now she's back on campus. She's not the kind of displaced student that we talk about at colleges and universities, but she's displaced too.
