Members of the College community this week are mourning the loss of Jeremy April, a first-year student from Northvale, N.J.

April, 18, was discovered passed away in his room on Monday morning, April 29. Officials said there was no sign of foul play.

College officials met with residents of April's dorm on Monday afternoon to notify them of the tragedy and to urge that they support each other and, if necessary, meet with counselors from various College departments.

April, a Union scholar, was a promising student with a strong interest in mathematics, according to his faculty advisor. He was also a world-level aerial freestyle skier, having been named recently to the U.S. Ski

Students, faculty and staff attended a College-wide vigil on Monday evening. As of Tuesday, arrangements were not complete.
