ST. CLOUD – Hundreds of community members gathered in the Atwood Mall to walk through the St. Cloud State University Campus to show solidarity through the Light up the Night campaign.

The St. Cloud State University Student Government Association held a candle light vigil to honor Colton Gleason who was tragically murdered on September 20th.

SGA president Jarrod Wiggins says Gleason’s case made students reexamine the issue of violence on campus.
