I just wanted to publicly commend the @BYU Faculty and Professors, many of whom have been sending out comforting messages to students urging them to seek help, come talk with them, and being true examples of charity. A beautiful response to the tragedy this morning. 💙— 🎄Feliz NaviDev🎅🏼 (@JustesenDevin) December 3, 2018
Let’s all have respect at this time. Someone jumped from the 4th floor of the Tanner Building. Classes there are cancelled as far as I know.— Young Isaac (@__corky) December 3, 2018
This is sad to find out about. If you have friends who need comfort and support now would be a good time to reach out.
To everyone that is saying BYU isn’t handling it well or to shut down the building. I witnessed the tragedy and it was inspiring how students and faculty immediately went to the girls aid and paramedics came quickly. It’s a devastating tragedy, but save your criticism.— Justin Ashby (@jsashby5337) December 3, 2018
All classes in the Tanner Building are cancelled today. The Tanner Building is closed for the remainder of the day.— BYU (@BYU) December 3, 2018
Counselors are available at 1500 Wilkinson Student Center.
they're posting people at the doors and going classroom to classroom to try to clear the building. Things like this take time, but I think they're trying. Let's be patient and help in the efforts. Encourage people to be respectful and leave the building.— Summer Herlevi (@Summersingsalot) December 3, 2018
So sad for the tragedy today here @BYU. Sometimes we forget how much #MentalHealthMatters. While grateful for the improvements in treatments, we have so much farther to go. Hug your loved ones close and let them know you care. You never know what they are dealing with.— kaycee (@kaycmurphy) December 3, 2018
Please keep the student that is in critical condition from the incident in the BYU Tanner Building in your prayers. We just found out it was a really close friend’s sister and we are in shock. Please pray for her recovery.— Shanoah Lauren (@shanoahlauren) December 3, 2018
