The University has lowered the flags to half staff to remember the victims of the Virginia Tech shooting.
Dr. Gary Bonvillian, President of the University says even though TU is a small campus made up of nearly eight hundred students and one hundred staff members, you have to be ready at all times, "In a matter of minutes you can inform many parts of the campus what is going on. It starts with me and my office and goes right through my administrative team and then out to the various division. We actually have protocol so you know who you have to call next."
Dr. Bonvillian says Thomas University's thoughts and prayers go out to everyone effected by this tragic incident.
