On September 11, 2001, America changed. Thousands of people lost their lives on that fateful day inside the Twin Towers in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and on a plane in Shanksville, Pa., due to terrorist attacks. In remembrance of the 2,977 lives lost, students and staff from the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning displayed American flags commemorating those who were lost. Students also reflected on 9/11 and its impact on their lives.
Through both reflective and engaging programs, WCU will pause to remember the events of that day and the impact on us as individuals, as a community, and as a nation.
