9/8/2011 —

To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11th Attacks on America, the Penn State DuBois Student Life Office, and campus students, have placed the "We Remember Board" on campus. 

 

Hanging in the Lion's Den Café in the Hiller Building, the bulletin board features an American flag with white stripes made from index cards.  This week, students have been encouraged to choose a card and write a few notes about their feelings about 9/11, then pin it back onto the flag to be shared with the campus community.  Students have written about their memories of that day, their feelings about patriotism, and more. 

 

The Student Life Office has also encouraged students to give back to their communities and participate in some type of service activity over the 9/11 weekend.  They've been asked to share their service experiences on the web at www.911day.org
