At Cornell, Three Student Deaths In One Month

The bodies of three Cornell students have been found on three separate occasions near the school's main campus in the past month.

The Cornell Daily Sun reports that Ithaca police confirmed yesterday the death of engineering junior Matthew Zika in the Fall Creek gorge.

On Thursday, rescue workers recovered the body of engineering sophomore William Sinclair from the gorge.

On Feb. 17, rescuers found the body of economics freshman Bradley Ginsburg in the same location.

Cornell President David Skorton sent an e-mail to the student body on Friday night, urging students to reach out to one another and seek mental health counseling if needed. "Your friends, your family, your teachers, your colleagues, and an array of counselors and advisors are ready to listen and help you through whatever you are facing. If you learn anything at Cornell, please learn to ask for help. It is a sign of wisdom and strength," he wrote.
