Students place flags around campus to mark 9/11 anniversary


In a season of relentless political rancor, members of the College Republicans and College Democrats wanted to do something special to mark the anniversary of 9/11.

So a handful of students from both organizations worked side by side placing 2,000 miniature American flags in the field near the flagpole in the shadow of the Nott Memorial.

The flags are a poignant reminder of that horrific day 11 years ago. They also serve as a message from a generation still in grade school when the country was under attack.

The Times Union featured a photo of the flags on the front page. To view a PDF, click here.
