LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Bucknell University will mark the one-year anniversary of the Virginia Tech tragedy Wednesday, April 16.

"There are many connections between Bucknell and Virginia Tech," said President Brian C. Mitchell. "I hope that each member of the Bucknell community will join in this observance."

Mitchell said the University community will honor the memory of the victims of that tragedy with a minute of silent remembrance, beginning at 9:51 a.m.  At that time, he said, the Rooke Chapel carillon will toll 32 times, once each time for one of the victims.

Displays in Langone and Dana
That same day, displays honoring the Virginia Tech community and the victims will be set up in the Elaine Langone Center and Dana Engineering Building.

Last year after the tragedy, Bucknell hosted a campus gathering to remember the victims, express solidarity with the Virginia Tech community, and support the process of healing. Many Bucknell students, faculty, staff, and alumni have close personal and professional connections with Virginia Tech.
