The Syracuse City Fire Department and the City Meditation Crew remember Sept. 11, 2001, with separate acts of live art, silence and a peaceful reading of the Quran.

Two events commemorating the ninth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks Saturday took culturally different approaches, but both strove for the same result; silent remembrance and inner peace.

The longtime magazine professor will forever be in the hearts of thousands of Newhouse students.

On Oct. 8, 2008, Bill Glavin shared this advice with the students in his critical writing course: when you write a profile about a person, you have to believe in that person. You have to know what makes them tick, what drives them, and you have to find what he called "the essence" of them.

I believe this about professor Glavin: as a teacher, mentor and friend, he found his way into the hearts of thousands and we are lucky to have known him.

The SU community honors victims of one of its darkest days during the annual ceremony for the Lockerbie, Scotland, tragedy.

Eric Coker and Jason Coker were students, twin brothers and witty jokesters. This is how Barbara Primeau describes her sons.

On Dec. 21, 1988, a terrorist bomb exploded on Pan Am Flight 103, claiming the lives of her two sons and 268 others.

Twenty-one years later, members of the Syracuse University community joined together on a sunny Friday afternoon in bittersweet remembrance of the 35 students who died on Pan Am 103 in Lockerbie, Scotland.
