Daryl Lee

Dear Students,

It is with great sadness that I must share with you the news of the passing of Ms. Daryl Lee, a GS student who first came to our community in the fall of 2007.  On December 31, Daryl lost her brave struggle against cancer.  I know that all of you join me in sending our deepest condolences to Daryl’s family, friends, and colleagues.

A full obituary and details of a memorial service for Daryl may be found here.

Whenever we lose someone within the Columbia community, we are all affected by it, whether or not we know the person well.   Such a loss can bring about feelings of grief and may bring back memories of other painful losses.  Please know that your academic advisor, the staff at Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS), and members of the Office of the University Chaplain are all available to provide you with any additional support you might need at this time.  We have listed their contact information for you below.

With sympathy,

Scott Halvorson
