Manhattanville Remembers 9/11
Monday, 12 September 2011 10:08

In remembrance of the 10th anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Manhattanville College organized events throughout the week prior to allow the campus community to honor those impacted by that day.

On Thursday, September 8, along with other campus communities around the country, the Manhattanville community gathered on the quad at 9:11 p.m. for a candlelight vigil. The event featured traditional bagpipes played by Scottie McIver and a performance by Manhattanville Sound.

A Wall of Remembrance was created in the Berman Students Center, where students, staff, faculty and administrators could write their thoughts and memories about 9/11.

On the day of the anniversary, the chapel bells at Manhattanville rang in remembrance at the exact times of the attacks on The World Trade Center, The Pentagon, and the plane crash in Pennsylvania beginning at 8:46 a.m.

A mass with special intentions for the members of the Manhattanville community affected by 9/11 was held at the O’Byrne Chapel.
