Galveston's "Sea Aggies" Find Their Land Legs at College Station
Mangan, Katherine
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n6 pA18 Oct 2008
More than 1,500 students who were driven off their island campus in Galveston, Texas, by Hurricane Ike resumed classes last week 150 miles inland, on the main campus of Texas A&M University at College Station. The students, who are enrolled at Texas A&M's marine-oriented branch campus, in Galveston, were hurriedly moved into spare rooms and impromptu classrooms as administrators scrambled to resurrect their fall semester. Known as "Sea Aggies," the students were invited to complete the semester on a flagship campus that is already bursting with a record 48,126 students. They had spent the previous two weeks in academic limbo, unable to retrieve their belongings from the devastated island and uncertain about the fate of their home campus.
