Message From Dean of Students Marianne Thomson
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:
I am deeply saddened to share news of the passing of Noah Buntain, a doctoral candidate in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. Noah, who was originally from Iowa, joined the University community in 2017 and pursued research in virtual and augmented reality.
In his time here, Noah touched many lives as a scholar, research assistant and instructor. I join Chancellor Kent Syverud in extending our heartful condolences to Noah’s family, friends, colleagues and professors on behalf of the Orange community. We send our thoughts and prayers to all his loved ones during this difficult time.
