Statement from President Hansen on the Virginia Tech tragedy

I know you are all aware of the shocking tragedy that occurred at Virginia Tech early in the week. While no words are adequate in a situation so sad and horrifying, I know you join me in expressing our sympathies for the friends and families of those whose lives were lost, and for all members of the Virginia Tech community as they grieve. Our thoughts also go out to members of our own community who have friends or family at Virginia Tech. Our primary concern must be with the victims, but at the same time such painful incidents may understandably cause us to reflect on our own safety.
