Message from Dean of Students Marianne Thomson
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:
It is with great sadness that I write to inform you about the tragic death of one of our students, Trevor Daley Pierce ’24. Trevor, a first-year student from Jaffrey, New Hampshire, was involved in an accident that occurred earlier this evening at the intersection of Comstock and Waverly avenues.
Trevor was pursuing a bachelor’s degree in political philosophy in the College of Arts and Sciences. He was a member of the Renée Crown University Honors Program and the Honors Living Learning Community in Sadler Hall. Trevor will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
This is an unthinkable loss for Trevor’s family, friends and loved ones and the entire Syracuse University community. Please join me, Chancellor Kent Syverud and our Orange family in extending our deepest sympathy and condolences to all who knew and loved Trevor. We send our support, thoughts and prayers to everyone grieving and impacted by Trevor’s death.
