January 6, 2005

January 6, 2005, Greencastle, Ind. - DePauw University administrators believe that no DePauw students were in the regions of South Asia that were devastated by a December 26 earthquake and tsunami blamed for nearly 150,000 deaths. "Getting in touch with people over the holidays can be difficult, but we can now report that it appears that none of our students or faculty members were in harm's way when the disaster struck," says Cindy Babington, dean of students and assistant to the vice president for student services. "While we are relieved for the DePauw community, our thoughts and best wishes continue to go to the people who have been affected by the disaster, and for those who are working to help the victims."
