At 7:00 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 5 a candlelight vigil will  take place at the Erb Memorial Union Amphitheater to honor and provide support for those affected by the tragic shooting that took place Thursday morning at Umpqua Community College.

During the candlelight vigil, there will be three speakers who are currently not identified.

“This tragedy is far too close to home for all of us,” Dean of Students Paul Shang told AroundTheO on Friday. “We seek to support our students who are grieving and honor our friends and colleagues at Umpqua Community College by this vigil.”

There is also an opportunity to write personal notes on a card for the community of Rosberg, located inside the EMU this weekend. The card will be given to the faculty, staff and families at UCC next week.
