Liberty Mutual

University marks 10th anniversary of September 11

By Gail Glover

The Binghamton University campus community observed the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks through a variety of activities.

A morning memorial ceremony took place in front of the Couper Administration Building.  At 8:46 a.m., a bell chimed to mark the moment when the first plane struck the World Trade Center. Several New York State University Police officers participated in a flag ceremony, followed by a moment of silence.

Sept. 11 memorial ceremony at Binghamton UniversityIn the afternoon, the campus hosted a program in the Memorial Courtyard of the Fine Arts Building to honor the 15 Binghamton University alumni (see their photos) who died in the 9/11 attacks. Speakers included Binghamton University alumni, staff and students. A spray of flowers was placed at the monument honoring those lost. (Pictured are Marcia Craner, MA '94, vice president of external affairs, and Brian Rose, vice president of student affairs.)

Afterward, a "Walk to Remember" began from the Peace Quad. Funds raised will benefit the Twin Towers Orphan Fund and the Broome Volunteer Emergency Squad.  The walk-a-thon was sponsored by the Chabad Center for Jewish Student Life, Binghamton University Alumni Association and the Binghamton University Student Association.

On Monday, Sept. 12, the Chabad Center for Jewish Student Life in conjunction with Hillel at Binghamton and the Jewish Heritage Program held its annual campus wide, Mitzvah Marathon. Mitzvah is the Hebrew word for "good deed" and the marathon was designed to present the campus community with opportunities to do a good deed in memory of the victims of 9/11. Participants filled out a form documenting their good deed that was attached to a picture of a victim of 9/11 and strung along a memory wall erected on the walkway near the Library Tower fountain. 

Sept. 11 exhibit at Binghamton UniversityAn exhibition to honor those lost on 9/11 is open for viewing in the Grand Corridor of the Fine Arts Building. Titled "New York York Remembers," the exhibition features photos, timeline panels and two historical artifacts - a fire-truck bumper and a section of aluminum from Ground Zero - which are on loan from the collections of the State Museum and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.  Open to the public, the exhibition will run to the end of September.
