Remembering September 11th

MP900305844 (2).jpg

"Each year at Eastern, we mark the passing of Sept. 11 with a moment of silence and personal reflection," explained Eastern President Elsa Núñez.."We felt this year's 10th anniversary of 9/11 was an opportunity to come together as a community and spend time remembering those who perished that day. As Americans, we should never forget what happened 10 years ago. We owe it to the innocent people who died that day and their families to honor their memory."

Eastern remembers 9/11 with a week of activities. Visit:

Do You or Someone You Care about Live in Southeastern Connecticut?

Do you have 60 or more prior college credits and live in southeastern Connecticut?  If so, youGail Turner.jpg should check out the Off-Campus Programs page on the School of Continuing Education's website.  Eastern maintains a site in Groton where Eastern courses are offered in the evenings and on Saturdays. You can complete a "Fast Track" Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree with a concentration in either Management or Human Services Administration.  Classes are offered in seven-week modules, either two nights a week or one day a week on Saturdays.  This program is especially appropriate for those with an associate degree from Three Rivers Community College.

Gail Turner is the Eastern Groton Site coordinator and a wonderful advisor.  She will spend time with you to figure out the best way to complete your bachelor's degree in a timely way.  You can even take advantage of our well-established Credit for Lifelong Learning program to get credit for what you have previously learned on the job.  To get started, call Gail at (860) 446-9457 or e-mail

P.S. There is a special scholarship available for part-time students who attend the Groton Site.  Through the generosity of the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut, 10 individuals with financial need will be able to receive a $500 R.E.A.C.H. scholarship this fall.  See Gail for details.

Remembering September 11th

This coming Saturday will be the ninth anniversary of September 11, 2001.  Since the anniversary falls on a weekend, the University President is asking that members of the University community join in a moment of silence on Friday, September 10 at 8:46 a.m., the time that the first hijacked airliner crashed into the World Trade Center. 


On September 11, 2001, more than 3,000 innocent people died in New York City, Washington D.C. and Pennsylvania.  These individuals were not only from the U.S. but from around the globe.  Remembering 9/11 is an opportunity for us not only to remember those who lost their lives but also, in the words of Eastern's President Nunez in her remarks to the campus about the moment of silence, "to remain steadfast to our own values--promoting peace, respecting life, and defending the diversity of opinion and beliefs that make our country strong."
