Campus Announcement, Sunday May 10

Campus Announcement: Sunday, May 10, 2015

As you are aware from our message earlier today, we have had another death on campus, this time one of our students, first year Julian Toomsen-Hall.  We are all reeling with shock, and we join his family and friends in mourning his loss.

We still don’t know precisely the reasons for either death. I promise to share more information with you as soon as we possibly can.

In the meantime, let me reiterate that we need to be especially mindful and supportive of each other as we complete this semester. This incident reminds us of how precious and fragile life is, and how important each of us is to our community. Please take care, and let us also agree to look out for one another.

A community meeting in Sudakoff is going on as I write, and you should certainly feel free to drop in. I encourage students to visit the Counseling and Wellness Center to discuss the emotions you’re experiencing.

Beginning immediately, in HCL 7, there are Group Sessions with Counselors, Snacks and Beverages.

Please offer each offer support as the semester ends and while some complete baccalaureate exams.

I deeply regret being the bearer of such terrible news.
