Campus Events
A memorial service for Jonia Mendonca Guterres'10 is planned for Wednesday, June 6 at 12 noon at Canaras Conference Center. The University will provide van transportation for those Summerterm students who wish to attend. Contact the Dean of Student Life Office at 5311 to reserve a space on a van. This service is for members of the St. Lawrence University community.

When all students and faculty return in the fall, a campus memorial service will take place, after we have the chance to work with Jonia's family. For more information, see President Sullivan's announcement of Jonia's accidental passing on Saturday, June 2, and a link to our on-line memory book.
