NSU to Hold Candlelight Vigil Thurs. March 31 in Response to Japan’s Earthquake

In response to the earthquake and devastating tsunami in Japan, Nova Southeastern University is responding to aid relief efforts in the country and providing assistance for our students and their families and friends who have been affected.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Japan and their country,” said Ray Ferrero, Jr., J.D., Chancellor of Nova Southeastern University, “I’m particularly proud of the global perspective of our students and their call to action.”

NSU, through its Office of International Affairs and the Nova International Student Association (NISA) and other student led organizations and faculty on campus, is working closely with the Consulate General of Japan in Miami to coordinate relief efforts.

A candlelight vigil is being held this Thursday, March 31, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Gold Circle Lake (behind the Alvin Sherman Library). Students, faculty and staff will share poems, songs and hear stories from NSU Japanese students who were affected by the earthquake. Monetary donations will be collected at the vigil and donated to the Relief Fund at the Japanese Consulate.

NSU has set up a website to receive monetary donations online. To donate, visit the NSU home page and click on Japan Relief Fund, or go to https://www.nova.edu/giving/ simply click on the “Gift Area” drop down box and select Japan Earthquake Relief Fund.

Counselors are available from Henderson Student Counseling Center for any students who are impacted in any way. Students seeking counseling can make an appointment by calling (954) 262-7050 or visiting: www.nova.edu/healthcare/studentcounseling.html.
