Katrina Quilt on display at Residence Life

The quilt was the idea of Gilbert and Harrington Hall complexes. They sold quilt squares for $2 each on which the buyer could write a message to Katrina’s victims. They sold 97 squares, and Iveta Ziegelbauer, a Residence Life complex coordinator, sewed the patches together.

UD students have written in a letter to Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, whose state suffered enormously from Hurricane Katrina. The letter will accompany the handmade patchwork quilt, with each patch bearing a message to the victims of Katrina that will be sent to Mississippi on behalf of the UD community.

A Capella Benefit Concert Success

All five of the University's A Capella groups united on 10-5-05(previous post) for a Benefit Concert for Hurricane Katrina. The concert was sponsored by Phi Sigma Phi and the D Sharps# and included the D Sharps, Golden Blues, Deltones, Y-Chromes, and Vocal Point. A crown of about 200 students attended and a great time was had by all. The concert was put on because, even though the Hurricane was 5 weeks ago, we still need to remember the victims. The money at the concert was raised by either donations or raffle and was given to Teach for America foundation, which helps schools throughout the country in low-income areas with inadequate funding.

One of the great points in the night was when there was an announcement that there was a surprise from all all the groups. For the first time in the University of Delaware's history all five a capella groups came together and sang. This joining together truely signifies how U of D students have truely joined efforts to help the victims. Well done!
