Students at CCU remember the dead

Conway, SC - CONWAY, SC (AP) - It's a day of remembrance for students at Coastal Carolina University.

Students at Coastal Carolina University will pause on Friday to honor the 11 members of the campus community - students, faculty and staff - who died during the past year.

The event coincides with the anniversary of the shooting at Virginia Tech three years ago in which 33 people were killed.

The victims of that tragedy are also being remembered at Coastal Carolina's Day of Remembrance sponsored by the student government and the school's counseling services.
