On Monday, August 27, 2012 Dillard University (DU) students and staff boarded buses for Centenary College in Shreveport, La as part of the DU evacuation plan. Hurricane Issac made landfall on Wednesday, August 29, on the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
Centenary College was a gracious host and is forever endeared by the Dillard community.
Six days later, tired but excited students returned to the DU campus and back to their dorms and residences.
Thanks to everyone involved who helped make this a memorable beginning!
