"The most, I guess the only word you can say is it's almost overwhelming, seeing everyone come together. I mean, we had the convocation earlier in the day, which was amazing, but just seeing everybody again, it's unbelievable."
7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Rebecca Yu, Virginia Tech student:
"You know, sometimes doing it by yourself, it's really hard and you really don't know what to do, but when you have friends and family, and even those you don't really know and they support you and that really helps."
8. SOUNDBITE: (English) Chris Hudspeth, Virginia Tech student:
"Why? Like he could have just come over to my building, Ellsworth-Bride, it's the biggest room on campus, why didn't he go there? Just to know how close it could have been and how bad it could have been for you, makes you wonder."

Thousands of students gathered in the large drill field in the middle of Virginia Tech's campus for a candle lit vigil on Tuesday night for victims of Monday's shootings there in which 32 people were murdered.
Each in their own way was asked to remember their friends, colleagues, teachers and fellow students who were killed on Monday.
Monday's rampage consisted of two attacks, more than two hours apart - first at a dormitory, where two people were killed, then inside a classroom building, where 31 people, including the gunman Cho Seung-hui, died.
Two handguns - a 9 mm and a .22-calibre - were found in the classroom building.
Gathered on Tuesday night, mourners vowed to continue the traditions of Virginia Tech, and reaffirmed their solidarity and comradeship with each other.
Several students said that coming together to express collectively their sympathy and grief was a great help.
"Sometimes doing it by yourself, it's really hard and you really don't know what to do, but when you have friends and family, and even those you don't really know and they support you and that really helps," one student, Rebecca Yu said.
For others the seemingly randomless nature of the killings preyed on their minds.
"Why? Like he could have just come over to my building, Ellsworth-Bride, it's the biggest room on campus, why didn't he go there?," said student Chris Hudspeth.
