Several events will be held on campus this week to remember the 35 SU students killed in the 1988 Pan Am Flight 103 attack.

This week, the Syracuse University community will participate in Remembrance Week. Many students have probably noticed the renovations on the Remembrance Wall in front of Hall of Languages have been completed.

But, what exactly is Remembrance Week?

On Dec. 21, 1988, 35 SU students returning home from study abroad programs were killed in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103. The plane held 270 passengers. The university started Remembrance Week to honor those students that died.
