The Campus Memorial Service
On September 17, more than 12,000 members of the campus community joined to mourn and reflect on the terror of September 11. Some brought flowers, others raised flags and signs of peace—all sought the solace of a community devoted to reason and tolerance. Chancellor Robert M. Berdahl told the crowd, "Let those of us who hold the candle of learning in our hands, hold firm in the vigil for freedom and reasoned discourse." Photos and coverage of the memorial service
