As a demonstration of support for the Virginia Tech community, the tower of Baylor University's Pat Neff Hall was lit in Virginia Tech's school colors of maroon and orange, April 23 and 24.

In response to a variety of requests, Baylor has made it possible for faculty, staff, students and alumni to send a personal electronic card commemorating the symbolic lighting of the Pat Neff tower to those who might have been affected by this tragedy, whether Baylor alumni and friends in the Blacksburg area, or to students and alumni of Virginia Tech.

"In this small way, we hope to remind those touched by this terrible tragedy that we at Baylor stand with them during this most difficult time," said Baylor President John M. Lilley.

Photographs of the tower will be sent to Virginia Tech as a symbol of the Baylor family's continued thoughts and prayers after the tragedy on their campus.
