Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:
I write to you today with a heavy heart to share news of the passing of a member of our campus community.

I join Chancellor Kent Syverud and Provost Gretchen Ritter in extending our sincerest sympathies and condolences to Yuyi’s family, friends and loved ones on behalf of the Orange community. Please join us in keeping all those who knew and loved Yuyi in your thoughts as they mourn this loss.
