Following Tuesday’s terrorist attacks on the United States, the University Life Office at George Mason is working to console students and provide them with opportunities to offer their own help. The following are a few measures University Life has taken:

  • Establishing a drop-in dialogue center outside the Student Government offices in the Johnson Center from noon to 8 p.m. yesterday and today. University Life and Counseling Center staff are in attendance, running small group discussions that allow students to share their concerns. Counseling Center staff are also available for one-on-one sessions.
  • Holding a memorial service on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at 10:30 a.m. in the Johnson Center Multipurpose Room. Faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend.[UPDATE: The memorial service date has been changed. The new date will be printed when it becomes available.]

  • Providing shuttles to and from George Mason to donate blood at the INOVA blood center. Shuttles run tonight from 8 to 10:30 p.m. Interested persons can meet at the Student Government Office. [UPDATE: INOVA is no longer taking blood donations due

    to a surplus of blood. This event has been cancelled.]

All events are coordinated by University Life, the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost, the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, Housing and Residence Life, and members of the University Crisis Committee.
