To the Columbia University Community:

We are deeply saddened by the passing of first-year Barnard student Tessa Majors and stand with the entire Columbia and Barnard community in mourning. Out of respect for this tragedy, the band will no longer be holding this semester’s Orgo Night.

We encourage students seeking support to attend Barnard’s community gathering tonight at 7 pm in the Diana Center and to reach out to any available resources.
