BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) - Hundreds of students have gathered on the campus of Virginia Tech to remember the 32 victims of Monday's mass shooting.

The mood is somber at the memorial on the Drillfield in front of Norris Hall, where most of the victims died. Nearly everyone is in the school's colors of maroon and orange.

There are flower bouquets and candles at the memorial, as well as a yellow sign covered in maroon and orange handprints and bearing the words "Never forgotten."

One student says he's at the memorial to connect with what happened on Monday. He says he almost feels guilty because he wasn't on campus when the shots rang out.

Other services and vigils are being held around the country.
