I know a girlfriend who is there at summer classes right now. She says everything is okay so far but they are still in lock down.

utter ridiculousness! Praying for peace and comfort as well as justice!

I am a prof at VA Tech – we are fine, just stuck inside our offices (and looking on the ‘bee when we should be working!).  I can’t help but wonder if this is just the result of a couple of bored kids in summer camp, BUT I am glad they are taking the precautions.

I was not at VT for the shootings, but many of my colleagues were, and no one has left because of the first shooting.  We are Hokies.  We are a unified campus.  We stick together.

On a side note – everyone is in “lock down” inside their buildings.  The idea is no one can get in/out.  And guess who is guarding our doors to make sure no gunmen get into our building?  The minimum-wage maintenance staff.  I am so impressed with our maintenance staff right now – seriously!  These guys and gals get paid next to nothing and are being INCREDIBLY noble.  I know that they won’t get any recognition on the national news front, but at least you ladies will know…..

@Rock Hugger: 

Thank you for sharing this! I am in awe of your maintenance crew. I just finished up working at a college and they are the backbone of the institution!

@Rock Hugger: Thank you for the update and I am glad everyone is ok. I hope it was nothing more than a hoax, then at least everyone would be safe. I wish the world were different…
