Japanese students aid home despite distance
After the recent disasters in Japan, several of Baylor's exchange students found themselves facing the challenges of truly comprehending what had happened in their homelands and trying to find ways to help from afar.

BU alumna, students speak from Japan
As 2010 Baylor alumna Jennifer Rader stood in her kitchen making Ramen noodles for lunch on March 11, her apartment building in Sendai, Japan, started to shake with the tremors of the country's most violent recorded earthquake to date. She turned off the gas to her stove and, as the shaking worsened, decided to open her door so that if the building shifted it wouldn't get stuck. But it wouldn't budge.

BU students abroad in Japan safe after disaster
Baylor's six students studying abroad in Japan are safe and expected to remain in the country to complete their studies despite the tragedies that occurred last week, unless the situation changes, according to Katie Erickson, exchange program and study abroad adviser.
