Where were you when you heard about Sept. 11? What do you remember most?

Emily Harris, senior, business/HR

I was in high school, in class. I don’t think I was as stressed as a lot of people were. It definitely was a shocking thing, kind of the instability or how vulnerable we really are as opposed to what we, what America always thought.”

Tanner Rotering, junior, mechanical engineering

I was pretty young. I think I was at my parents’ house at the time. I don’t remember a lot. I think we got out of school early, went home; the news was on. Our parents were watching it, but my brother and I were pretty distracted at the time with kid things. It wasn’t really a huge memory to me in my life, unfortunately.”

Boomer Stamps, sophomore, computer science

I was hanging out at my friend’s house. We were skateboarding and I had no idea what they were talking about when they said what had happened. I think I was in sixth grade. I had no idea what was going on. Someone just told me someone flew a plane into a couple buildings in New York. I was like, I don’t know what you mean.”
