All of us at Pace University have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. After over a week without class, postponed midterms and meetings have made life unusual for all of us. Now that power has been restored to lower Manhattan and subway service has resumed through most of the five boroughs, it feels like the dust has settled and things can return to normal. However, many people cannot return to normal just yet. Unprecedented damage along the Northeastern Coast must get repaired, and many people are still displaced from their homes as a result of the hurricane. We encourage all of our students to take stock of the damage and donate their time or money to help repair the Northeast. Check out how the Red Cross has been assisting victims, and see how you can get involved! No time? You can donate 10 dollars via text message. Simply text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make your donation.
