September 11, 2023

The Criminal Justice Club and TRIO invite everyone to honor and remember the events of September 11, 2001
Please join us in sharing memories, messages, and meanings of this day at Moore Hall and Leviton Auditorium.
A short film on September 11th will play throughout the day. While these events were shattering, they serve as a reminder that what UNITES will always be stronger than what divides.

We hope to see you there.
