Yesterday in the Irvine Valley College A-Quad, students, staff and faculty gathered at 10:27 to mark the one week anniversary of the Umpqua Community College shootings.

Rebel Girl was particularly pleased to talk with one student who mentioned how proud she was that her school, IVC, had created a response to this tragic event. The student explained that she had talked her friend who goes to another Orange County college and that school, she said with some disdain, "hadn't done nothing."
It was the student's first semester here at IVC and she clearly sees us as school that does "something."
