Remembering 9/11

New York skyline

We invite the campus community to take a few minutes to reflect on the events of September 11, 2001, when thousands of men, women, and children became victims of an attack on the United States by terrorists. This event occurred at the New York World Trade Center, the Pentagon in Virginia, and a western Pennsylvania field. Join us in remembering the lost, honoring the first responders, and supporting our nation's military.
