Gov. Kate Brown told reporters, "There is still a lot of healing that needs to happen. The students that I met and talked to need a lot of support and they need a lot of love." (Video via WTHR)

The school's president says it's too early to discuss what will happen to the building where the massacre occurred.

She told The Oregonian, "It's so important that students get back in class and get back to studying and have a sense of normalcy. This isn't quite normal but we're trying."

Local media reports community members lined the streets to offer support Monday morning. Counseling services are being provided to anyone on campus.
