On the sixteenth anniversary of the September 11 tragedy, student volunteers from AIC’s POWER (Political Opinions Will Enable Reality) and SAAC (Student Athletic Advisory Council) placed 2,996 flags on the Quad, in memory of the lives lost that day.

Students began placing flags at exactly 8:46 a.m. — the time in which the first plane struck the North Tower at the World Trade Center — and Father John McDonagh spoke outside the Campus Center at 10:10 a.m. — when Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania.

This has become a yearly ritual at AIC in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11, and one that is appreciated by the entire campus as a symbol of unity.
