Calif. --- (NBC News)  Students from University of California campuses from Los Angeles to Santa Cruz and beyond are grieving in solidarity.

And now, a week of organized remembrances.

The first vigil took place Saturday night as thousands of people silently carried candles from the university to another Isla Vista park. (Little Acorn Park remains a crime scene.)

Monday night, a vigil was scheduled at Westlake High School in Thousand Oaks, where one of the victims, Veronica Weiss, 19, graduated last year.

Classes are canceled Tuesday at UCSB, where the 17,000-seat soccer stadium was being prepared Monday for a massive outdoor gathering Tuesday afternoon.

Faculty, staff and grief counselors were on campus to meet with students who want to talk about their loss. University of California officials say counselors will remain on site for as long as they're needed.
