ARCATA, Calif. (AP) — The Northern California university where high school students involved in a deadly bus crash were headed is remembering the victims.

Humboldt State University President Rollin Richmond told hundreds of faculty, staff and students who gathered on campus for a memorial on Thursday that the students who died were taking the right steps to ensure a better future.

Authorities have said the bus was headed to a free tour of the university when it was struck by a Fedex truck last week. Many of the students on board were hoping to become the first in their families to attend college. Five students, three adult chaperones and both drivers died.

The Times-Standard of Eureka reports that university officials plan to give hearts with the words, "Love from Humboldt," to those who were injured and the families of those who died.
