Several campus activities were planned for Wednesday, Sept. 11, to mark the anniversary of terrorist attacks on the United States on Sept. 11, 2001.

Campus flags were displayed at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Wednesday in commemoration of Patriots’ Day.

Members of the Vanderbilt community were invited to stop by Benton Chapel from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to light candles and sign a remembrance book.

The Vanderbilt College Republicans placed 2,977 small American flags on the lawn in front of Central Library in memory of lives lost on 9/11.
