The Student Government Association is hosting a candlelight vigil tonight to mourn the April 16 tragedy at Virginia Tech.

Monday's massacre at Virginia Tech began at a residence hall and moved across campus to Norris Hall, the university's engineering building, leaving 33 people dead and many injured. The shooting is considered the worst mass killing in U.S. history.

Throughout the day, students can send messages of hope on a banner in the Mountainlair. SGA will also be handing out orange and maroon ribbons, in support for Virginia Tech, according to a press release.

The vigil will then take place tonight at 9 p.m. in Woodburn Circle, weather permitting.

"We want to do our part on our campus to extend our condolences to those and their families at Virginia Tech," said SGA Vice President Jason Parsons. "We encourage all students and those in the community to come out."

SGA President David Kirkpatrick and President David C. Hardesty are scheduled to speak.
