We write with deep sadness to inform you of the sudden loss of a cherished member of our Residence Life and Student Affairs family early Tuesday morning. Daniel Watt, RC of Edens Quad and former RC of Kilgo Quad, was killed in a car accident. Daniel was the passenger in an Uber and the only fatality in the crash.
