Condolences expressed for victims of Paris Terrorist Attacks
This statement may be attributed to California State University Chancellor Timothy P. White
“I express outrage and share in the anguish of the rest of the civilized world regarding the horrific events that occurred yesterday in Paris. My deepest personal condolences go out to all those whose lives have been impacted by these senseless acts of violence. One student from Long Beach State died in the terrorist attacks. My heart is heavy and I am deeply saddened for the family of Nohemi Gonzalez and the Long Beach State community, and I grieve with all those who have lost a cherished one. Many campuses in the CSU have students studying abroad in France, and all others are known to be safe."
CSU Long Beach will host a vigil for slain student Nohemi Gonzalez on November 14 at 4:00 p.m. More information available here.
