Tragedy in Las Vegas

We are deeply saddened by the horrific events in Las Vegas. The images from the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history are difficult to view, and it’s even more difficult to imagine the pain and anguish being experienced by the families and loved ones of the victims. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them.

As members of our university community, we care for each other in times of tragedy. Our Office of Religious Life is holding an interfaith candlelight vigil at 7:00 p.m. this evening in the courtyard of the University Religious Center to allow us to come together to honor the victims and survivors of the tragedy. We are reaching out to our students who are from Las Vegas and who might have family or friends affected by this event.
