Colleges want students to complete census forms

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama colleges want to make sure their
students are counted.

Colleges and universities are spreading the word to students that people living in residence halls or fraternities or sororities on campuses are supposed to fill out census forms.

Some students said they were confused and thought they would be counted on their parents' census forms.

Most people have already received census forms, but they will be available on campuses in April and May.

Alabama State Data Center manager Annette Watters told the Montgomery Advertiser students need to be counted where they live
because federal money is allotted to those areas based on the
census.

At Huntingdon College in Montgomery officials are planning census parties in residence halls to encourage students to complete the census forms.
