Relief for Haitian Students

Yesterday the Institute of International Education (IIE) announced a new emergency grant program for Haitian students studying in the U.S. The grant, called Haiti-EAS (Emergency Assistance for Students), will provide $2000 to those who have been impacted financially by the crisis in Haiti, are studying at an accredited U.S. university, and are a citizen of Haiti.

These funds, however, are only available to students if colleges and universities apply on their behalf. IIE requires a campus’ International Student Adviser or equivalent administrator to submit applications by February 12. While the University Office of Global Programs here at Penn State is already working to help those affected by the earthquake, we hope they take advantage of this opportunity to help our own students.

If you want to contribute to the IIE’s grant program, donations can be made here. Where it says “Direct my gift to,” fill in Haiti-EAS to make sure your donation goes to the right place.

Southern Kitsch and Sweet Tea at Cracker Barrel

After several months of anticipation, I was finally able to check out State College’s new Cracker Barrel on its opening day. Located at 215 Colonnade Blvd., there are few surprises at the chain’s new location. With rows of rocking chairs out front, checker boards and a game of peg solitaire at every table, I could have been at any franchise location in the country — not that that’s a bad thing.
