Classes resume a week after Virgina Tech massacre - Nation: "The memorial bell rang at 9:45 a.m., around the time when Cho killed 30 students and faculty members in a classroom building before committing suicide. The tribute lasted 11 minutes, as the bell rang for each of the victims and Cho.
'It's only been a week, but it seems so long ago,' said Marc Hamel, 43, a political science student. 'Getting back into class is really going to help.'
As the crowd broke up, people started to chant, 'Let's Go Hokies' several times.
A moment of silence was also observed at about 7:15 a.m., near the dormitory where Cho's first victims, Ryan Clark and Emily Hilscher, were killed."
