Students show support for VT, plan vigil

Students at Pittsburg State University will join with other students across the nation on Friday, April 20, to show their support of the Virginia Tech family in the wake of shootings there this week by wearing the VT school colors of Maroon and Orange. Maroon and Orange ribbons are available in the Overman Student Center and well-wishers may sign a banner there that will be sent to Virginia Tech after Friday.

In addition, the Student Activities Council, the Residence Hall Assembly and the Student Government Association will hold a vigil in memory of the those killed and in support of the Virginia Tech family at 9 p.m. on Monday, April 23. The vigil will begin on the PSU Oval, where candles will be passed out, and will continue with a walk to the University Lake.

Anthony Moreno, one of the student organizers of the vigil, said students are planning the vigil because they feel a special kinship with the Virginia Tech students.

“Because this was on a university campus,” Moreno said, “it affects all of us.”
