The 1,200 students at Texas A&M-Galveston have been relocated to the school's flagship campus in College Station, likely for the rest of the semester, the Houston Chronicle reports. Although the Galveston campus itself did not suffer much damage, the entire island remains without power or city services.

A&M officials plan to hold Galveston classes at night and on weekends, as well as combine with College Station courses. Housing is already a tight squeeze, but students from Galveston—whose main attraction is its ocean-related programs—may be longing for something else besides space: College Station is 125 miles inland.
