Memory Wall

The anniversary of 9/11 is a time to reflect on those who lost their lives and honor the sacrifices of the first responders of this tragic morning. The University of Houston would like you to take the time to reflect on what you remember most about September 11, 2014. The Division of Student Affairs will create a Memory Wall which will be near the front entrance of the Student Center to place all postcards filled out online and in person. Postcards will be displayed beginning September 8. Lapel ribbons will also be available throughout the day at the photo exhibit and the Student Center Information Desk for all to participate in remembering 9/11.
