    Issac boardingDSC 0019Dillard University students who were evacuated from the Gentilly campus, were sent to Centenary College in Shreveport, where they were welcomed with open arms.

    Dillard's Jerald Bowman was in awe of the reception they received. He said Centenary’s students were open and receptive to their arrival, even though the Dillard students arrived at the Shreveport university sometime after 2 a.m. Tuesday.

    “What was so flabbergasting was the fact that Centenary students were out waving, they had welcome signs, they helped with bags and luggage,” Bowman said. “We’re so receptive and so grateful for it. It’s one thing to say you’re going to do something or act a way, and it’s another thing to show it.”
