College News and Departmental Notes: European Students' Relief Fund
by Departmental notes - 1921
The drive for the aid of destitute students in Central Europe, conducted by the American Relief Administration, has been enthusiastically supported by Teachers College. Following an address by Dean Frederick Keppel, on the situation abroad, a bureau was opened for receiving subscriptions. Within a few days, a total of eight thousand dollars was subscribed by Teachers College. It is a matter for congratulation that Teachers College stands second among the American colleges in the list of contributors. The only institution exceeding this figure was the University of Illinois. Lawrenceville Academy comes third on the list. In addition to this fund, Whittier Hall, on Self-Denial Day, raised, by personal contributions, one hundred eighty dollars. These gifts included contributions not only from the students and staff but also the employees.
