Campus mourns student's passing

Thursday, March 27, 2008

For all those parties interested in the response of the University to the news of the death of junior Katherine Sherman last week, here's the e-mail the dean of students forwarded to the student body on Tuesday:

With great sadness, I am writing to let you know that Katherine “Katie” Sherman, a member of our campus community, died last week while studying abroad in Auroville, India.

Katie, a junior from Chelmsford, Massachusetts, was in the Bachelor’s ofFine Arts program with a concentration in photography. She also worked in the Student Union Crafts Center. While in India, Katie was studying sustainable living, ecology and group dynamics. We extend our deepest sympathy to her family and friends during this difficult time.
