Night Of Remembrance To Commemorate Students Who Passed Away This Year

The University Park Undergraduate Association will host the fifth annual Penn State Night of Remembrance ceremony beginning at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 25 on the steps of Old Main to honor the students who passed away this year.

The candlelight vigil will honor ten University Park Students, five World Campus students, and 15 Commonwealth campus students, all who passed away between April 1, 2018 and March 31, 2019.

The ceremony will include music, secular readings, a reading of the students’ names, candle lighting, and an open student testimonial. UPUA also said it plans to contact Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) to ensure representatives would be present for students who may need support.

UPUA will also collaborate with the Council of Commonwealth Student Governments and the Graduate and Professional Student Association to ensure their constituent students are aware of and can be represented at the event.
