Each year, RIT commemorates the events of 9/11 hosted by the Arnold Air Society—a professional and honorary service organization comprised of cadets from regional officer candidate training and university ROTC programs.

This year’s vigil takes place on Wednesday, Sept. 11, at the Sentinel in front of the Student Alumni Union. Taps will be played in front of a flag array at 8:46 a.m., 9:03 a.m., 9:37 a.m. and 10:03 a.m. as a tribute to individuals who lost their lives during the four terrorist attacks in New York City; Washington, D.C.; and Pennsylvania.

This is the eighth year that RIT has hosted the event.
