On Thursday, Sept. 9, Muskingum University came together as a community to not only remember the events of 9/11, 2001, but also to acknowledge how our world continues to be impacted by ongoing conflicts, including the recent loss of lives in Afghanistan.
The University hosted a memorial service, 9/11 Remembrance: Finding Peace in Chaos. The service featured music from the choir and ensembles, Story Corps excerpts performed by members of the Forensics team, personal stories shared by faculty and staff, and recognition of the 13 servicemen and women recently lost in Afghanistan.

Faculty also presented a panel that evening, which looked at 9/11 and its connection to current events from an academic point of view. Faculty members in nursing, history, political science, international affairs, and music shared their perspectives as well as answered questions.
On Sept. 11, the flag in front of Montgomery Hall was lowered to half staff in remembrance of the events of September 11, 2001, 20 years after that tragic and momentous day for the United States and the world.
