Remembering Students Who Passed Away: April 16, New Brunswick
It is tragic when a student passes away. Even within a large institution such as ours, losses are felt deeply and enduringly as the weeks and months pass. It is thus important and appropriate that we, as a community, come together to remember and reflect upon the lives of those students who have died recently. Join us for Rutgers Remembers on April 16 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at Winants Hall, Rutgers University–New Brunswick. We will begin a new tradition of ringing the Old Queens bell in remembrance of every student lost this year. During the program, there will be an opportunity for those present to share brief personal remembrances of these students. All are welcome to attend.
