Our world changed at 8:46 a.m. Sept. 11 when American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into an American icon. As news of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon unfolded, members of the campus community came together to help each other grapple with the catastrophe.

At 1 p.m. on the day of the attacks, President Shirley Ann Jackson cancelled classes and closed offices so that students and staff could assist in a blood drive and attend an afternoon prayer service.
