Note-share program created for displaced Kamloops students

A massive fire at the Copper Ridge Court apartment complex in Kamloops, B.C., last week displaced about 100 people from their homes.

Among them are more than 30 students attending Thompson Rivers University.

Alexandra Moulten is a 4th year anthropology student, the fire left her and the others without  their study notes, and midterm exams are just around the corner.

But as difficult as things are for students like Alexandra, they're not being left to cope on their own, the local United Way has stepped in to help set up a note-share program and support the students.
