The first event of 9/11: Reflecting on a Decade commemorative programming was organized by a UNCW graduate student and held on September 9, 2011. More than 1,500 UNCW students, faculty and staff came together on Hanover lawn to create a representation of the Twin Towers and the Pentagon in remembrance of the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The participants held up the names of the 2,977 victims of the 9/11 attacks. Photographs of this event were taken from a bucket truck and the event garnered recognition in the local press.
