    We have experienced many tragedies this academic year, and the loss of students last semester and this semester has been very hard on our entire community. The loss of student life is something we would like to address specifically. There has been much discussion in the media and on social media about numbers and causes of recent student deaths. Speculation has led to assumptions and generated many questions, so while Appalachian does not typically release the cause of death in individual cases involving students, we want to share the following in order to ensure our community is accurately informed.

    The news we received last night about the death of one of our students saddens me deeply. This was a devastating announcement for all of us, and I want to emphasize that there is no evidence to suggest any threat to the university community.
