Sidney Evans, vice president for student affairs and dean of students at Washington and Lee, sent the following message to the University community today regarding Friday’s attacks in Paris:

“I am sure you are all aware of the terrible events that took place in Paris yesterday. The Center for International Education has confirmed the location and security of our students who are in France.  We will continue to monitor the situation and be in touch with our students. Our hearts go out to the victims, their families and the people of Paris.

“The university community will gather at 5:00 p.m. Sunday in front of Lee Chapel for a candlelight vigil.”
