Andrew Hamilton, who graduated from the School of General Studies in 2013 with a degree in Neuroscience and Behavior, passed away earlier this week. The cause of death has yet to be released to the public, and there is an ongoing police investigation.
Hamilton was known on campus as a lover of board games, a member of the Philolexian Society, and the maker of a documentary on democracy in Russia which can be previewed below. He had been working in President Bollinger's office for the past few months.
According to a Facebook group in memory of him, there will be a public memorial service on campus on July 19, as well as a funeral open to Andrew's friends on July 20. More information will be made available over the coming weeks. (Update): An email sent out to the Philo listserv has also confirmed that there will be a memorial service at St. Luke's Theatre on July 1 at 7 PM.
