Dear Students and Faculty,
The School of Architecture, Design, and Planning family is deeply saddened by news yesterday of the passing of Gianfranco Villagomez-Saldana, one of our recent graduates. He graduated in May with a BFA in industrial design, and was now pursuing a degree in computer science in the School of Engineering. He was a beloved student.
KU has counseling services available to help students cope with the loss. Details are available at http://www.caps.ku.edu. We ask the School of Architecture, Design, and Planning community to come together to support one another at this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends and family for their loss.
