Transcript What began as a typical Monday morning for Virginia Tech students quickly transformed into a maniacal massacre that took 32 innocent lives. Engineering senior Cho Seung-Hui opened fire first in a dormitory, killing two people. Two hours later, he embarked on a shooting spree throughout classrooms that culminated in his suicide. Two shootings on Virginia Tech's campus April 16, 2007 begged the questions: Where was the administration and why were students not alerted sooner? A series of questions that undoubtedly haunts Virginia's campus security in the wake of such a travesty. Our own University of Houston tested its communication after the Virginia Tech murders. An email from Eric Gerber, director of university communication, alerted the UH population of a death at on-campus apartments, Cullen Oaks. Twenty-six year old senior Andrew Lee died of natural causes in his apartment sometime in April and was found Tuesday April 24. The death of one student united the UH community in a way unimaginable with over 36,000 students in its population. In the days following Virginia Tech's enormous loss, those affected students, faculty, friends and family needed the support of those across the nation. UH did not exempt itself. Students gathered between M.D. Anderson Library and Philip Guthrie Hall to mourn the loss of innocent life on a college campus that was just like our own. For those students who sought answers or simply a caring face, ministers at the A.D. Bruce Religion Center were available to talk and to listen. UH also offered condolences written on banners, demonstrating empathy for those students, faculty, and administration who survived the Virginia Tech attacks. For a community that is primarily individualistic, traveling from work to school, from school to home, University of Houston students gathered together to mourn the loss of innocent life and to recognize that such violent acts can happen anywhere, even in our own backyard. >m m n 00 m prayer VIGIL UH students gathered in remembrance of those who were killed in the Virginia Tech massacre in April.
