BSU Candlelight Vigil Tonight


Boise State will hold a candlelight vigil tonight to honor the victims of Virginia Tech shootings, at 9 p.m. tonight on the Quad on the Boise State campus.

The community is invited to participate in the vigil. The event is sponsored by the Associated Students of Boise State University.

"It is our hope to show that students at Boise State, along with campuses nationwide, can come together, share our grief, and pay our respects," said Amy Ortmann, ASBSU president. "I ask that we, as students, faculty, staff, administrators and community members, unite to remember and support those who have been impacted by this devastating event."

Ortmann has been in contact with other schools in Idaho and around the nation that will hold similar vigils on campus on Monday or later in the week, including the College of Southern Idaho, Lewis and Clark State College, the University of Idaho, Idaho State University, BYU-Idaho, Texas Tech University, Utah State University and the University of Texas.
