Dear Members of the Scripps College Community,
As a community, we are saddened by the horrific bombing yesterday at the Boston Marathon.
While Scripps has not received any reports of current students, faculty, staff, alumnae, or friends injured at the marathon, a tragic event of this magnitude can impact us in a variety of ways. Some of us may be disoriented as we process what happened and learn more details. If you are worried about friends and loved ones, or if you are having difficulty with the disturbing news, please speak with someone in the Dean of Students Office, the Chaplains at McAlister Center, or the Monsour Counseling and Psychological Services (Tranquada Center) for support.
At this time, our thoughts are with the people of Boston and all those who have been affected by yesterday’s terrible act. We salute the many first responders and civilians who showed courage in the face of danger and acted to help the many wounded.
