The college community is asked to observe moments of silence at solemn times.

As Brooklyn College has done every year after September 11, 2001, the campus will memorialize those lost on this tragic day with De Profundis (Latin for “out of the depths”) that will ring from the carillon in the Library Building’s bell tower. The bells will toll according to the chronology of the events of September 11, 2001, and the Brooklyn College community is asked to observe a moment of silence for these solemn times.
