Our hearts are heavy today with the news of yet another mass shooting that comes even as we continue to process the shooting deaths of 12 Jewish neighbors in Pittsburgh less than two weeks ago. This latest shooting occurred in Thousand Oaks, CA in a dance hall that accommodates young adults and college students like those in our own community here at UT. Please join with us in acknowledging these further losses to our larger community, reach out to your family, friends and neighbors to offer support, and know that the staff of the Student Counseling Center are here for you if you need our support during these times.
