The Michigan Daily - Thursday, October 27, 2005 - 7A
Continued from page 1A
Assistant Director Richard Davis, who is responsible for han-
dling all aid cases concerning Katrina victims.
But Davis was hard to reach, Human said. "I felt like I was
stalking him - I left like six messages."
A week and a half later, Human finally got a face-to-face
meeting, where he showed Davis pictures of his ruined house.
Human alleges that Davis told him pictures of his overturned
refrigerator, toxic water-stained drywall and extensive mold
damage "didn't look that bad."
"He was completely accusatory and unsympathetic," Human
Frustrated, Human's father called University President Mary
Sue Coleman's office. In response, an aide to Coleman left a
voicemail on Human's phone, telling him to forget about the
e-mail. Even though Davis had told him he would not qualify
for financial aid, the voicemail said Human should not worry
about his case, which the OFA is still reviewing. Human said the
aide also told his father that Davis had been reprimanded for his
In the meantime, Human is worried the threat in the e-mail
will come to fruition. "I am concerned that I won't be able to use
my Mcard," he said, although he has not had any problems yet.
Although Human said he has not heard a final decision,
University officials said yesterday that Human's case has been
resolved. Peterson would not comment on the alleged discussion
between the president's office and Davis, saying the University
does not discuss personnel matters. Davis could not be reached
for comment despite attempts to contact him at his home and
office. Typically, financial aid officials do not discuss individual
Yet Financial Aid Director Pamela Fowler said Davis has
done a good job making sure the affected students are taken care
of. "I have three letters on my desk from families who thanked
Richard for his efforts," said Fowler.
Despite the University's efforts to help all the students affect-
ed by Katrina, officials say it's not surprising that at least one of
them would have problems getting everything in order.
"You try to take a very large organization with processes and
try to fit them to unusual circumstances, (and) there are glitches
along the way," Peterson said.
Office of Financial Aid officials say they feel they are doing as
much as they can, adding that their efforts have been frustrated
partly by a lack of communication from affected students. Of
the 300 e-mails the office sent to students in hurricane-affected
areas, Peterson said, only four students replied.
Fowler said students who have financial difficulties because of
the storm should contact her office.
Still, some students that were displaced by the hurricane and
admitted by the University in September, such as LSA junior
Walker Hines, said their semester is going "terrifically well."
Even with the hurricane's damage, Hines's family is doing
well financially, and he has been able to cover $3,000 in hous-
ing expenses for his room in Northwood. The University has
covered his $14,000 tuition this semester, and he said he has
received e-mails about opportunities for free off-campus hous-
ing next semester.
In fact, things are going so well that he has applied to take
classes full-time next semester. "This school has provided so
many resources for all of us here," he said. "I'm very grateful for
that and thus hope to continue my education here."
For other affected students who are not having financial prob-
lems, the hurricane's emotional impact has made this semester
Robert Brode, a second-year Law student whose family lives
in Michigan but who attended the now-closed Tulane University,
was planning on returning to Tulane before it closed its doors
for the fall semester. He was admitted as a guest student at the
University shortly after the hurricane. Although the hurricane
did not financially harm his family, he says this semester has
been "really hard."
"It's not necessarily because of school - it's just other things
going on," he said. "The more I read about the hurricane, it's
Even so, he said the University has been "really helpful, very
willing to meet and discuss any problems I might be having." In
addition to counseling set up through Counseling and Psycho-
logical Services, Brode said University officials recently held a
lunch with the Tulane students to discuss any issues they have
Meanwhile, Human and other affected students continue
to work away on schoolwork while their families clean up the
watery mess down south. "There are times when I talk to my dad
and he says, 'Kenny, you'll have to come back to LSU'," Human
said about his family's financial difficulties.
"Then there are times when it looks like it will be alright."
