“We are shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of one of our own students. Our students come to UAFS full of promise and ambition, and it is tragic to lose one of them at such a young age. Our thoughts go out to the student’s family during this difficult time, and we will make counseling available to help students, faculty and staff cope with this sad news. We strive to provide a safe, welcoming campus for our students and have no reason to believe this student’s passing was from any form of violence, nor do we feel there is any safety concern for our campus community.”
