Eastern remembers impact of 9/11 attacks


Corryn Brock, Editor-in-Chief

Twenty years ago Saturday, a terrorist attack shocked the United States from those leading the country to those in small towns like Charleston.

The country watched in horror as 2,977 lives were taken in what some call the worst attack on the United States.

Now, 20 years later, the country continues to honor the lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001 as memories linger of that day.

Eastern continues to remember that day from the professors and students who followed the events of 9/11 happen while on campus, the current students who have memories of honoring 9/11 as they grew up and the student journalists who covered the impacts of 9/11 while being young adults, some straight out of high school.

Sept. 11, 2001 left a lasting impact on the world, the United States.

On page 5 of this edition of The Daily Eastern News, more information can be found on how 9/11 impacted Eastern and where the campus is 20 years after the terrorist attack that rocked the United States.
