Summary Sentence: No summary sentence submitted.

Full Summary: Georgia Tech will mark the anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11 with a series of events to honor both the heroes and the fallen.

At 8:46 a.m., the time the first plane hit the tower, Georgia Tech's campus whistle will blow three times followed by a campus-wide moment of silence. At 10:29 a.m., the moment the north tower collapsed, the whistle will blow three more times followed by another moment of silence. The whistle is traditionally used at the "When the Whistle Blows" ceremony in the spring to honor Tech students and alumni who have died in the previous year. Three Tech alumni were killed in the terrorist attacks. Tech is blowing the whistle on September 11 in their honor and to express solidarity with the families of the attacks' victims.
At noon, students, faculty and staff will gather at the Campanile in front of the student center for a remembrance ceremony. President Clough, along with representatives from the students, faculty and staff will deliver speeches at the ceremony.
