The entire Nevada State College community is saddened by the horrific event at last night’s concert outside Mandalay Bay. We honor the memories of the lives lost in the Oct. 1 tragedy at Mandalay Bay, and hope for healing of the injured victims, affected families and loved ones, and our community as a whole.
We have received reports this morning that students, their family members or their friends were injured in the incident. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
Schools in the Valley including Nevada State are open today, but we understand that this tragedy impacts us all. Counseling is available for those in need. We don’t yet understand the why, and we may never fully account for it, but we can support each other.
From 3 to 4 p.m. today, our Community Engagement and Diversity Initiatives team will host a Gathering in the Wake of Tragedy in the Rogers Student Center ballroom. Students are encouraged to attend and talk through the impact of yesterday’s incident with your fellow Scorpions.
