Although Adelphi will operate on a normal schedule, several memorial events have been planned for Wednesday, Sept. 11.
* In response to Governor George Pataki's request, Adelphi will toll their bells at 10:29 a.m., the time the second tower collapsed. Therefore, all university business, including classes, will pause for five minutes of remembrance and the Adelphi University carillon will toll. Those who wish to do so may assemble at the flagpole for a silent remembrance.
* Other significant times are 8:46 a.m. (attack of North Tower); 9:03 a.m. (attack of South Tower); and 9:59 a.m. (collapse of First Tower). Observing moments of silence at these times will be a personal, not a campus-wide, choice.
* The Center for Cross-Cultural Enrichment and the Muslim Students Association will sponsor an interactive town meeting in the University Center Ballroom at 1 p.m. The program is entitled "A Year of Reflection." Audience participation is encouraged.
* An interfaith service with the University chaplains will take place at 2 p.m. at the flagpole.
* At 7:30 p.m. there will be a candlelight remembrance at the flagpole to which all are invited.
Because this will be an emotional day for the university community, the Student Counseling Center, the University chaplains and Derner's Center for Psychological Services will provide additional and enhanced grief and supportive services. Throughout the day, a silent memorial (memorial banner) will be available in the University Center lobby for those who wish to share their thoughts. AU-TV (campus television) will broadcast news coverage of all national events.
