BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Hundreds gathered at University at Buffalo’s North Campus to honor a student who died on campus Wednesday.
Many of the young man’s friends and family members came together as a way to remember someone who they say made a great impact on the university community.
UB Police say they do not suspect foul play.
Many in attendance were members of the university’s band, which classmates tell News 4 the student was part of. The group marched from Slee Hall onto the football field where the young man’s loved ones spent a moment to remember his legacy.
UB President Satish Tripathi sent out a school-wide email Thursday notifying students and staff of the young man’s death and urging those who may be struggling to seek help.
