From BU Emergency Management


Today, April 25, Boston University’s Emergency Management Department will conduct an “active shooter” emergency preparedness exercise in Medical School Library, located in the Instructional Building, beginning at 11:50 a.m. to test the University’s Active Shooter emergency response plan. BU conducts exercises like these regularly to ensure readiness to act in the case of a real life situation. This exercise includes a limited number of staff and volunteers, who already have been identified. In addition, the BUMC Department of Public Safety, Boston University Police, Boston Police and Boston EMS will participate in this exercise.



Thank you.

Students Talk About Virginia Tech

The shooting rampage that killed 33 people at Virginia Tech stunned much of the world, and the waves of shock and horror that emanated from the once-bucolic mid-Atlantic school reverberated on college campuses across the country. At BU, many students have posted on their Facebook pages a VT/BU symbol and the words “Today, we are all Hokies.” Others stood in quiet honor of the victims at a rainy vigil held Tuesday on Marsh Plaza.

BU Today asked students to share their thoughts about the tragedy. This is what they said.
