A vigil on UVA's storied Lawn outside Old Cabell Hall the night of Nov. 14, marking the memories of the three students who were killed on Grounds Nov. 13: D’Sean Perry, Lavel Davis Jr., and Devin Chandler, and the two who were hospitalized with injuries.

From the Dean

“It has been a heartbreaking time for UVA,” writes Dean Baernholdt of the shooting that left three UVA students dead and two wounded on Nov. 13. “But our gatherings have shown me both the depth of emotions felt by our community members and our resolve to support and console one another. It is just what we nurses do.”
