Students React to Las Vegas Attack

Together in solidarity.

Temple student organizations such as SASSA, TSG, S.M.O.O.T.H., Progressive NAACP, Society of Minorities in Sports, AMS, and more gathered together for prayer and song this week to remember those 59 people that lost their lives, and the many who have the long road of recovery ahead.

While Las Vegas may be far from Philadelphia, it hits home for many here on campus. Student organizations want fellow Owls to know they have a safe space here on campus to grieve and process the tragic events.

“We all need to be here together even though you know we go to our classes, we do extracurricular stuff, we represent the temple student body, we all need each other,” said Breea Gillette, President of Progressive NAACP.

“Whatever you need to do to be physically, mentally, and spiritually well, feel free to do that. I feel like we have so many resources here on campus but also in Philadelphia, and I think we need to break down the stigma of actually seeking help with so much happening not only on our campus but in our nation and in our world altogether,” said Tyrell Mann-Barnes, President of Temple Student Government.

Students are encouraged to visit Tuttleman Counseling Center for support in these difficult times. Walk-in hours are available six times a week, and you can learn about other resources available here.
