Tragedy at Virginia Tech: A Student’s Story

Just two weeks ago, Virginia Tech University experienced an overwhelming tragedy on its campus when a mentally ill student gunned down 32 students and faculty. It was the worst mass shooting in our country’s history.

One of our writers, Melanie Harris, is a student at Virginia Tech. We all mourned and were saddened by the events of that day, but for Melanie, the experience was much more personal and truly hit close to home.

Read her perspective on the tragedy, and how she is finding the strength to cope with such an immense loss. We thank Melanie for her bravery in sharing her story with us, and everyone at University Chic continues to hold the Virginia Tech community in their thoughts and prayers.
