On Friday, the Hokie nation spread from the mountains of the Blue Ridge into the hearts and souls of nations abroad. Students everywhere dug through their closets to find something orange and maroon to wear in honor of the 32 who were lost on Monday.
About 150 students came out and showed their respect for the Virginia Tech community on the MIT Student Center steps, in Cambridge, Ma.
“It was not as powerful because it was in broad daylight, but it takes a lot to get MIT students to gather,” said Josh Campoverde, class of 2008 computer science major.
When the chaplain announced that students could write messages on the boards, everybody hesitated for a few seconds. “One person went up. Then a few more, then everyone was going up the steps,” said Campoverde.
