one of his friends wondered if certain disciplines were being targeted -i.e. engineers.
I can think of few other disciplines that attract nicer people.
It's so horrible. I went to VA Tech, and seeing what was essentially my HOME for four years on CNN in this context is just incredibly sad and disturbing. I keep thinking of the victims' parents, sending their kids off to school and worrying about their safety. VT is a huge campus set in the middle of a lovely little rural town, and I always felt safe there. We all know these things can happen anywhere, but it really hits you when it's this close to home. I don't yet know of anyone who was close to one of the victims, but everyone here has friends and relatives at Tech. It's just a terribly sad day.
I just saw that one of my former professors was one of the ones who died. Prof. Loganathan, in the civil engineering dept.
