Indian students at Indiana State look for new home

The American Indian Student Association at Indiana State University is searching for a new home after its basement office was flooded.

The office was used mainly to store books, posters and other items. While most of the items were damaged, Rebecca Riall, the co-chair of the Native American Graduate Student Association, said the flood has renewed interest in creating an Indian cultural center on campus.

Riall said the university could turn over an aging fraternity house to Indian students instead of spending $200,000 to demolish it. But a school official said renovations on the building have been deemed cost-prohibitive.
