Hundreds of UCF students signed a banner Monday supporting the Parisian people in the aftermath of last week’s terrorist attacks.

The College Democrats organized the event and will send the banner to the French consulate in Orlando. “We stand in solidarity with France as they unite against terror in their country,” said the group’s Facebook page.

Because of the tragedy, the campus Counseling and Psychological Services is offering help and support to those who are feeling distressed. The staff at CAPS is aware how a traumatic world event such as this can impact individuals and have a rippling effect on our campus community.

Call CAPS at 407-823-2811 or visit the center 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, or 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday. After hours, dial the main number and press 5 to speak with a therapist. Check out CAPS’ Resources for Coping under the Student Resources at
