Tara Riesner, School of Arts Student, Passes Away

Very sad news tonight: Tara Riesner, a third-year MFA student in the School of Arts Writing Program, passed away last night, according to an email sent to School of Arts students by the SOA administration. The cause of her death was not revealed. Emails sent to SOA students indicate that Tara passed away in a Columbia residence. We send our deepest condolences to Tara’s family and friends, and we all mourn this loss to the Columbia community. We’ll provide updates and information about a memorial service as we learn more.

Update, 9/9: Spec is reporting that the death was a suicide. We’ll update as we learn more.

    @Class of 2010 Bwog, did you watch out this time, not to send out this info before it was supposed to be published? Last time you really shat the bet with something similar.

      @Anonymous 1) It was the Spec
      2) Reading comprehension, use it: “Emails sent to SOA students indicate…”

      More to the point, death sucks.

    @Anonymous That was Spectrum that got a little carried away I thought?

    My sincerest condolences, I’ll have to see how the MFA students are handling it.
