Rebuild around Colleges\r\nBy Dr. Andre Perry, Contributing Columnist
 December 12, 2005 \r\nFormer Presidents Bush and Clinton came to the University of New Orleans campus on Wednesday, December 7, to announce how they plan to distribute Katrina relief funds of $110 million. While this generous donation which were garnered from corporate, individual, and government donors, will provide a small financial boost to Louisiana\'s massive rebuilding efforts, the University of New Orleans and Xavier, in particular, scored equally important political and symbolic lifts in the battle for needed higher education funding. The universities also took advantage of the Presidents\' visit to state that \"colleges and universities can be a cornerstone of New Orleans\" rebuilding efforts.\r\n
