Fresno State President Joseph I. Castro ordered flags at Fresno State to be flown at half-staff through September 20 in keeping with a White House proclamation by President Barack Obama “as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on September 16, 2013, at the Washington Navy Yard.”

President Obama ordered U.S. flags at the White House and all other public buildings lowered. Fresno State is posting its U.S. and California flags at half-staff at three campus locations and all Athletics events: the Thomas Administration Building Rose Garden, the North Gym, and the Save Mart Center.
