04.16.12 | Bob Price

Today, the fifth anniversary of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the 28,000 students on campus head to class to honor the 32.

Provost Mark McNamee, who chaired a committee that planned memorial events in the years after the shooting, says the return to classes reflects the lives of those slain.

The day will be remembered in other ways on the Blacksburg campus, in Washington and by alumni across the country.

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell has issued a proclamation recognizing April 16th as Virginia Tech Remembrance Day.
