9/11 Remembrance Service and Blood Drive

The University of Richmond recognized the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks with a service of remembrance and campus blood drive.

The Office of the Chaplaincy held a non-sectarian service of remembrance to honor the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11. The service included music from Schola Cantorum, readings from sacred texts, prayers, and candle lighting. The names of UR alumni and family members of alumni who died on 9/11 were read.

The Muslim Law Students Association, in partnership with the School of Law, the Office of the Chaplaincy, Richmond College, and Westhampton College, held a blood drive to honor the nearly 3,000 who lost their lives on Sept. 11. The blood drive was part of "Muslims for Life," a nationwide campaign during the month of September to collect 10,000 units of blood to help save 30,000 lives.
