More than 500 Tarleton State University students live in parts of Texas hit the hardest by Hurricane Harvey.
In an email to Texan News, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students Mike Leese said the university has identified 534 so far.
“This includes online students and those in Waco, Fort Worth and Midlothian. As for the exact number on the Stephenville campus, we really don’t know at this point.”
In addition to that, 10 to 15 students who are members of the Texas National Guard have been activated.
Student Affairs met Monday to plan ways to help students who were affected by Hurricane Harvey.
These plans include the housing staff contacting the families of students affected, and the collection of donations at the upcoming volleyball and football games. Student Affairs is also planning to work with Sodexo to allow students to donate some of their meal swipes.
