p>I'm a librarian from a university in San Francisco, and I want to let ALL of you in the library know how much your librarian colleagues from across the country and I are thinking of you and the Virginia Tech community at the horrible time in your history. I am very very sorry. I hope that the act of learning can bring you and your students back to a sense of normalcy and help you heal.
It is truly wonderful to see the outpouring of support that we have had from friends, colleagues and strangers from around the world. We are proud of our university and know that we will grieve always, but will also grow even stronger together. Thank you for your good words and kind thoughts. It means a lot to us at this time. I believe the Virginia Tech spirit is exemplified in the words that Nikki Giovanni shared with us yesterday at the memorial convocation.
Again, many, many thanks.
Eileen Hitchingham, Dean of the University Libraries
OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH ALL OF YOU. MAY THE LORD GUIDE YOU THROUGH THIS ORDEAL AND MAY ALL BE IN HIS PEACE AND LOVE TO THE END. ONCE AGAIN GOD BLESS ALL. (From a BUCKLIN, KANSAS family)
Dear Fox News: I was listening to your program this afternoon and heard the news about the shooting on the Virginia Tech Campus. Please give my condolences to all of the families, friends, and acquaintances of the deceased and wounded. The reason for this email is also to complain about the security system on the campus. I am not aware of it, but from what I heard it was not secure. Maybe some strobe lights for the hearing and visually impaired and a loud sounding horn system which hould only be used when people are at risk. There should be special instructions for students at orientation, to ask no questions, avoid any delays, but to act in a protective manner when alerts are given--stay inside, and wait for an all clear once the alerts are sounded. I am just so upset, and sad about what happened. I was a student in Norfolk, VA, and worked in Virginia and Portsmouth years ago. I am a Social Worker, and wanted to offer something to help to avoid any future tragedies, or to minimize such! extreme loss of lives.
What happens to students who graduate from your Univ and remain unemployed a long time. What would your Univ do to try to help them?
At Virginia Tech we have an extensive Career Services Division whose purpose is to assist graduating students and Alumni in finding employment. If you have any additional questions about this service, I would suggest that you contact their office directly.
