Memorial and Senior Reading

Faculty and students of the Department of Writing & Linguistics join with student leadership of the Student Nurses’ Association, Kappa Delta Sorority, AlpIMG_0450ha Delta Pi Sorority and Alpha Omicron Pi Sorority in honoring and mourning the death of the five nursing students who lost their lives April 22 in a tragic car accident.

The Senior Gala Reading event that had been scheduled for today was postponed by agreement of faculty and students to respect the grieving families and to join the community in honoring the five bright souls of the students we lost.

The senior reading is postponed to Tuesday, April 28 at 7PM and thank everyone for their patience, understanding, and solidarity in joining the community and families of the girls tonight in a vigil.
