Message from JSU President

I join with millions around the world in expressing sympathy for the victims and families of Tuesday morning's terrorist attacks.

Jacksonville State University students, faculty and staff have joined hands to help however possible -- donating blood, assisting the Red Cross with supplies, and participating in other ways to help survivors.

The tragedy was the most shocking event in modern American history. We will remember it the rest of our lives. The goal of terrorism is to disrupt our normal lives. In the short term, the best way to cope is to keep life as normal as possible. At JSU, we feel it is important that our students go to class, talk about this tragedy with professors and peers, and remain level-headed. As JSU President, I assure you that all necessary precautions are being taken to ensure the safety and security of everyone on campus. Classes and other normal University activities will continue in accordance with the University calendar. I am personally monitoring events and will make further decisions and statements as conditions warrant.

If you have questions about the University's position or response, please contact the University News Bureau at 782-5468.
