Troy University students commemorated the 21st anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks over the weekend.

Troy University’s College Republicans and the TROY for Troops Center, along with other volunteers, also paid tribute to those who lost their lives during the 9/11 attacks by lining the University’s main quad with American flags.

The miniature flags were placed around the quad on Friday night and remained in place until the Sunday anniversary of the attacks.

The University’s Air Force ROTC Detachment 017 hosted a 9/11 Memorial Stadium Climb on Sunday morning at Veterans Memorial Stadium. Participants climbed 1,980 steps, representing the total number of steps in the Twin Towers, as a tribute to first responders who sacrificed their lives in an effort to save others on that morning in 2001.
