any students want to go to iraq?

odu and iraqi university sign an international memorandum of understanding:

The president of Salahaddin University in the Kurdish region of Iraq was on the Old Dominion University campus Tuesday, Oct. 10, to sign an International Memorandum of Understanding to allow an exchange of students and faculty between the two institutions.

The exchange is the product of 20 months of work by an ODU nuclear physicist, Moskov Amarian, who is an Armenian Kurd. It is designed to bolster educational opportunities in a part of Iraq where suppression by Saddam Hussein and the unrest associated with the current war has made it difficult for universities to operate.
