Subject: Incident Involving Students


To the campus community:


I’m writing to let you know about an incident that occurred over fall break involving our students. Yesterday afternoon, several students were in an accident while boating on Amston Lake in Hebron. They were rescued from the water and received medical attention. One student remains in intensive care at Hartford Hospital.


We have been in touch with the families, are providing support for the students involved, and assisting authorities investigating the incident.


Any time a member of our community is at risk, it concerns us all. If you’d like to talk to somebody, please reach out to a staff member in Student Affairs, CAPS, or the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life.


We’ll continue to hope for the student’s recovery and to provide updates when available.
