On the Monday following the 20th anniversary of 9/11, SU community members gathered in remembrance. The event was a brief ceremony held outside of the Ezra Lehman Library, where 20 years ago it was the site of a candlelight vigil held the night after the attacks. The memorial saw speeches from ROTC members and leaders who were impacted by the events of the day, as well as a message from Interim President Charles Patterson.
The campus also commemorated those lost with American flags adorning the academic quad at the heart of campus. Each one represents someone who perished, from those in the buildings, to the first responders and volunteers, and the 44 passengers of Flight 93 who heroically diverted the plane from it’s initial target of the U.S. Capitol.
