Virginia Tech students return to classes

After a week of mourning the deaths of 32 people, students will return to classes at Virginia Tech, said The New York Times.

According the The Washington Post, students have been given the option to return to classes or get credit for their classes with the grades they have so far, due to the trauma.

Home baked cookies made by grandmothers, will be handed out to the students that decide to return to campus in order to provide comfort, reports Reuters.

Grief counselors will be sent to the first meeting of each class in which a student or faculty member was killed or injured. Norris Hall, the scene of the worst carnage, will remain closed for the semester, said USA Today.
