VT Campus to Commemorate Anniversary of 2007 Shootings

April 15, 2010

As Virginia Tech commemorates the third anniversary of the shootings that left 33 dead, many directly affected by the tragedy worry the memory of what happened will fade as they graduate and move on.

Friday marks three years since student gunman Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 students and faculty and then committed suicide. Events were scheduled for Thursday and all day Friday to mark the anniversary.

Many students who were attending Tech at the time of the attack are poised to graduate next month. Their departure will diminish further the number of students at Tech who were there on the day of the killings.

Students for Non-Violence co-founder John Welch says he worries that future generations of students won't grasp the magnitude of what happened.
