    It's back to business for a small school in the East Bay which is still recovering from a recent tragedy.

    According to the San Jose Mercury News, Oikos University will resume classes starting next Monday.   This comes three weeks after a deadly shooting rampage by a former student. Investigators say One L. Goh shot and killed six students and a receptionist back on April 2nd. The 43-year-old has since been charged with seven counts of murder and three counts of attempted murder. But questions are being raised on the university's plan to hold classes in buildings where people died. And some are wondering if people attending the university will ever come back.

    A few say they will attend, only if classes are held elsewhere. One student who was wounded on her arm says she will not be returning.  Another who police say was an intended target by Goh says she will never return to the school even if classes are held at another location. University officials say it is in talks on moving some courses to either Oakland's Patten University or Fremont's Unitek College.   But neither of those two schools say an agreement has been reached.

    Oikos University is licensed by the state, and it offers a wide range of programs including nursing, music and religion.  Most of the student population comes from Korea, but it also attracts people from several other foreign countries.
