More than 100 people, including many stu­dents, packed a standing-​​room-​​only suite in the Renais­sance Park building for the nearly two-​​hour event, which was held just days after more than 40 people were killed in an Islamic State group sui­cide bombing attack in Beirut and then a series of attacks in Paris left at least 129 dead and some 350 more wounded.
