University Opens Classrooms

Hundreds of college students forced out of their schools by Hurricane Katrina came to Boston this week.

Boston College has enrolled at least 150 undergraduates, Harvard has taken in 25, and at Boston University, officials say they've registered more than 200 displaced students from Tulane University in New Orleans.

Bob Oakes stops by Boston University's Metropolitan College, where some of those students were trying to register for classes.
