MU bells to ring as tribute to 9/11 victims

Friday, September 9, 2011 | 1:46 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — Anyone within earshot of the MU campus Sunday morning will hear the sounds of bells marking the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

The bells of Memorial Union, Switzler Hall and the Reynolds Alumni Center will ring at the exact times the four attacks occurred — 7:46 a.m., 8:03 a.m., 8:27 a.m. and 9:03 a.m., according to an MU News Bureau press release.

In an email to MU students, faculty and staff, Chancellor Brady Deaton asked people on campus to take a moment of silence during those times to pay honor and tribute to those affected by the 9/11 attacks.
