Ad Feedback

 Today is the anniversary of one of the worst mass shootings in American history.

Two years ago today, Seung-Hui Cho went on a shooting rampage at Virginia Tech, killing 32 students and faculty before killing himself.

The university cancelled classes Thursday and declared it a day of remembrance. They will hold a ceremonial candlelighting at noon.

At least 3,300 people, including those injured in the massacre, will also participate in a 3.2 mile race in memory of the victims.

A ceremony on the main lawn of campus will honor the accomplishments of the students and faculty members killed.

Events also include an open house in the new Center for Peace Studies and Violence Prevention that occupies the classroom wing where the shootings took place.
