The college's Patriot Day observance was organized by the Blue Mountain Battalion Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) and included the playing of "Taps" as the flag was lowered to half-staff by the ROTC color guard. A red, white and blue wreath was laid beneath the flagpole by President Margee Ensign.
“[The events of that day] changed the trajectory of the world that we lived in,” said Maj. Kevin Krupski, professor of military science, noting that while he experienced the day firsthand, it’s a part of history for today's college students, many of whom weren’t yet born that day. “We now hold the flame, carry the torch, to ensure that that history lesson is alive.”
