Tragedy at Virginia Tech

Monday, April 16, 2007, was a day that was tragic, incomprehensible, and sad for America.

We cry and share the grief for the loss of so many innocent students and educators who were massacred and injured while pursuing their dreams for academic success and classroom excellence. This was truly senseless, something completely unthinkable that has touched and changed the lives of so many both at Virginia Tech and in academe. We express our deepest condolences and profound sympathy to all who mourn.

On Wednesday evening, Ball State students, faculty, and staff lined the sidewalk and grassy area near Bracken Library’s north door by the Frog Baby Fountain for a vigil to remember the massacred and the evil that happened at Virginia Tech. Victims’ names were read while about 200 students lit candles in their memory.
