B-CU

February 15, 2008

President Trudie Kibbe Reed, faculty, staff, alumni and students of The GREAT Bethune-Cookman University were deeply saddened to hear of the catastrophe at Northern Illinois University (NIU) on yesterday. The incident resulted in an appalling loss of life due to shootings at Cole Hall. We extend our prayers and most heartfelt sympathy to President John G. Peters, faculty, staff, students and alumni of NIU. We pray that God be with Dr. Peters as he guides his campus through this difficult time.
