(ROSEBURG, Ore.) — Students at Umpqua Community College went back to school for the first time since a 20-year-old gunman opened fire nearly two weeks ago.

As students headed back on Monday, they were greeted with an emotional reception of hundreds gathered along a road leading up to the school to wave flags and show their support.

In attendance was Oregon Gov. Kate Brown as well as Umpqua Community College President Dr. Rita Cavin.

Snyder Hall, the scene of the shooting where nine were killed and nine injured, is still not open, and some are hoping it will be torn down.
