Photo Caption: Berkeley College paid tribute to the victims, survivors and first responders of September 11, 2001, with events of remembrance and reflection at each of its campuses in New Jersey and New York. Nine alumni, five students, and the husband of a professor died in the attacks 17 years ago. Students, faculty and staff engaged in various service initiatives during September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance, which promotes community service as a way to honor the victims. At Berkeley College in White Plains, NY, students created inspirational cards, blankets for hospital patients, and laundry sachets for women at shelters.
